Würselen parade

We went to get to know our new neighborhood this afternoon. We thought there was a festival and maybe there was. Most of what we saw was the parade part of it. First we got ice cream and walked around and played in some local parks. A large part of this parade was walking very dressed up young ladies around town escorted by young men in the colors from their area of town. Apparently, it used to be related to marrying off the eligible maidens, but now it mostly seems to be for fun.
My kids are perplexed by people smoking, especially in public. They always want to know why someone would do that. It’s a tough question to answer.

One thought on “Würselen parade”

  1. So good to finally catch up with your move news! A welcome gift from the city?! Very cool. The kids and adults all look happy (I love the expression on Spencer’s face in the German tutoring photo!), and congrats on finding the permanent apartment. We’ve been thinking of you all so much–it’s not uncommon to hear “I wonder how the Fedibnletys are doing” in our house these days! Thanks for the blogging. And happy settling in! –Carolyn
