St. Martinstag 2014

This past Saturday the children celebrated St. Martinstag at German school.  St. Martin was a Roman solider who gave his cloak to a beggar who was cold.  The children march through the a halls singing a sweet little song Lanterne Lanterne Ich gehe mit my Lanterne Sonne Munde and Sterne.  The watch a little re-enactment of the moment of Martin giving his cloak to the beggar and afterwards are given a treat of pretzel bread.  The littles are really enjoying going to German school.


We've been parading around the streets with our lanterns, too. They don't do St Martin's in Sweden, but as it's so dark here in the afternoons, nobody really questions why the kids carry around lanterns :) xx
