In November each year German children celebrate St Martin's Day. Carrying lanterns, and singing special lantern songs they walk around the streets in a procession after darkness falls. The procession often ends with a bonfire.
St. Martin's Day is one of the most popular saint's days in Germany. Martin of Tours was born in the 4th Century and started out as a Roman soldier, later becoming a monk, and because of his exemplary way of life was later appointed Bishop of Tours Many legends surround his life, the most famous of which tells how he cut his cloak in half to share with a beggar who was dying in the cold.
Join the Liederkranz Turner as we celebrate St. Martin's Day on Saturday, November 15.
Families will gather in the Great Hall at 3:00 p.m. to create a lantern for each child participating. All materials provided. While the lanterns are drying, a snack supper will be served at 5:00 p.m. in the Rathskeller. At 6:30 p.m., we will parade through the St. Anne’s Hill neighborhood with our beautiful lanterns, singing the St. Martin’s carols. Following the parade, we will meet back at the Liederkranz parking lot for a bonfire, hot chocolate, and a special treat. Please bring lawnchairs, if desired.
