    When I was a little boy, we celebrated Christmas in Germany. I remember Saint Martin on his white horse, and "Peter" with a stick to beat the "bad kids" ... in the street!

    Merry Christmas.

    We lived in Bonn, which is in the Rhine Valley.

    "The nights before and on the night of Nov. 11, children walk in processions carrying lanterns, which they made in school, and sing Martin songs. Usually, the walk starts at a church and goes to a public square. A man on horseback dressed like St. Martin accompanies the children. When they reach the square, Martin’s bonfire is lit and Martin’s pretzels are distributed.[3]

    In some regions of Germany (e.g. Rhineland or Bergisches Land) in a separate procession the children also go from house to house with their lanterns, sing songs and get candy in return."

    We used to craft lanterns in school each year. Memories ...
