St.Crutzen Fountain inaugurated

This morning, Saturday, 26th May, 2018, the St.Crutzen-Brunnen in Weißkirchen, located in a courtyard next to the church, was inaugurated by Fountain Queen Anna-Lena I. and her Brunnenmeister Herbert, who were accompanied by a number of their predecessors.

The fountain was originally inaugurated on 30th May 1999, but only now has it been dedicated to one of the Fountain Queens. The large sphere represents the Universe.

Carollers at the town hall

Carol singers in German do not go from house to house before Christmas eve, they do it afterwards instead – specifically between 27th December and 6th January.

During this time, the so-called “Sternsinger”, organised by the local church and who are sometimes translated as “star boys”, go from house to house to collect for a particular good cause using the year’s motto and dressed as the Three Kings.

This year the motto is “Segen bringen – Segen sein!” (bring a blessing – be a blessing!) and the money raised will go to help children worldwide, in particular in the Philippines.  With the whole country taking part, it is not unusual to raise over €40 million.

Before they leave they write 20*C+M+B+15 on the door frame, the letters standing for “Christus mansionem benedicat”, or “God protect this house”. [Read more…]
