St. Martinstag 2014

This past Saturday the children celebrated St. Martinstag at German school.  St. Martin was a Roman soldier who gave his cloak to a beggar who was cold.  The children march through the halls singing a sweet little song Lanterne Lanterne Ich gehe mit my Lanterne Sonne Munde and Sterne.


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
