Although I am proud of my PA Dutch heritage, it makes me wonder how some cultures came about celebrating the day by throwing beads at girls who flash their bare chests and we ended up stuffing ourselves with fastnachts...

Coon Duke is PA Dutch RKG. Traditionally in PA Dutch culture Fastnacht Day was a day to use up all the rich foods in the larder to remove temptation during the fasting that was to come over lent.

Personally, I'm okay with both overeating fastnachts and throwing beads at bare-breasted girls. I think the two traditions should be combined, maybe throw fastnachts at the girls? grin

Ya, ich bin awwa. ;-)

I also know that many traditions were inherited from others and modified. Spent many hours teaching the origins of traditions that we blindly follow, but have no idea where they came from, or what they mean.

Machst guut!
