St. Martin's Day competition

Not only are lantern processions customary to celebrate St. Martin's Day, families also bake so-called Weckmänner and Weckfrauen for this festivity. To encourage our students to engage in these customs, VWGS hosted a competition in which students sent in pictures or videos of their homemade Weckmänner/Weckfrauen, of their self-crafted lanterns or of them taking part in a lantern procession. Here are some impressions of the entries we received.
