Happy Rose Monday: Enjoy Carnival

Carnival is celebrated throughout the world, but today is Rose Monday, which is definitely the highlight of German carnival. Especially in the western parts of Germany there are lots of parades in many cities where you can see colourful floats and catch some Kamelle, pieces of candy which are thrown into the crowds. Many people will dress up in fancy costumes and it is a time of celebrating, dancing, partying and drinking.

In the carnival strongholds schools are closed on Rose Monday, many shops will close down and a lot of people will take the day off to be able to participate in the celebrations, which are all day long. Heavy carnival fans probably have been celebrating since last thursday, as the street carnival started then with “Weiberfastnacht”.

Whenever and whereever you celebrate, we wish you a wonderful carnival. Have a great time.
