carnival season in Germany
im curious about carnival season in Germany...I believe they have something called Fasching and Karneval, are they the same thing? if not, what is the difference..anyone knows?
words used in German
Fasching and Karneval are not really the same thing! It's like in the States there are two main words used in German for Carnival or Mardi Gras, which is the pre-Lenten celebration that ends on Ash Wednesday . Also, Fasching is a Germanic word, while Karneval is a Latin word.
The carnival season in Germany is also called the "Fifth Season"
So how did carnival season go this year? Does anyone know the dates for next year?
I found a calendar showing February 12, 2013 for next year. In 2014, March 4 and in 2015, February 17 marks the beginning of the celebrations.
Hearing the show calendar of showing February 12, 2013 for next year. In 2014, March 4 and in 2015, February 17 marks the beginning of the celebrations I have a new cruricity to have some photos of last show held in 2012.
Hearing this I like to have some photos of 2011's show. If possible please share me a link to see those videos too.
