Overview of festivals and celebrations in Germany
Germans are very fond of carnivals. The Carnival of culture takes place in Berlin. That’s a symbol of tolerance and respect for people of different races or skin colors. Another carnival is Fastnacht; it takes place before the start of Lent. During the celebration, everything is allowed to women and men. They can eat any food in unlimited quantities, drink alcohol, have fun and entertain in all conceivable ways. According to one tradition, women can attack men and cut off their ties, usually in bars. For the carnival procession, citizens of the country dress up in costumes of devils, buffoons, wild people, yeti, witches, and fairy-tale characters.
