Easter bonfire

Posted by
Anthony Morgan Lambert (Bielefeld, Germany) on 9 April 2015 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

It is a tradition all over Germany to light bonfires over the easter weekend.In Sankt andreasberg the fire is lit on the mountain behind the Bell tower.
This tradition dates back to Saxon times and pre-dates Chritianity.The fires chase winter away and help Spring to arrive.

Beautiful atmosphere. Maybe lighting a fire would help us - still cold and grey here
