For those of you whom have never heard of Fasching it is Germany's way of celebrating Carnival. In Germany it is known as Fasching or Fastnacht. It is essentially the time where Germans and people around the world celebrate and go crazy before Lent begins and they must give up something...in the case of Germans not likely their beer ;)
Their biggest way of celebrating is dressing up in all sorts of costumes and going out on the town, and having giant parades too. They throw out candy and toys, and at least in the past they used to give out shots. But this year that seemed to not occur.
It is a lot of fun and as long as the weather permits standing in the streets lined with "fools" is a great adventure that will never be forgotten. Here is just a preview of the madness that is Fasching!
