You are welcome Connie, they are fascinating traditions aren't they, and am glad you enjoyed them and sorry to be so late getting back to you.
I had no idea Germany still celebrated so many different ancient customs and traditions until living in the country for some time. You know how it is when one moves anywhere, becoming acclimatized to a different culture and way of life and living is the first priority, then it is 'Discovery Time'.
And that is so rewarding.
