In case you visit Germany* in January or February, you will probably often hear a word during this time which is “Fasching” [faʃiŋ]. Fasching is the main term for the German carnival period. It’s also called the “fifths season” and in some places jesting time (närrische Zeit). But it’s very different to the carnival you maybe know from Brazil. For in February in the northern hemisphere, it would be difficult to dance on the streets in light clothing. Therefore, the carnival time in Germany is about different things, but it’s also a huge event. In this article, I’d like to give you some insights about Fasching which would broaden your horizon. So read on, folks.
Since the english language became a business language, some of its vocabulary got adopted by a lot of countries around the world. In some places more, in other less. Sometimes, it’s even unavoidable (think about the IT and the internet). This led to the fact that in a lot of countries neologisms were invented you actually won’t find in the english speaking countries. In other countries you will find the same words but with a complete different meaning. Germany, as an export nation, is one of those countries, where English is more present than e.g. in France, Italy or Spain. Maybe that’s why here you will find a bunch of english words, you might be confused with as they have different meaning than in the real English speaking world. Therefore, I’d like to introduce to you the most common of these words in case you’d like to travel to Germany*. So read on, folks.
The Oktoberfest in Munich is the biggest folk festival in Germany and it’s the most famous fair in the world. That’s why this folk festival goes beyond the borders of Germany. For instance, only in the United States there are over 100 copies of the original German Oktoberfest taking place. Meanwhile, there is even in China an Oktoberfest in the city called Qingdao. Allegedly, the Oktoberfest in Cincinnati, called “Oktoberfest Zinzinnati” ist the best of all US copies. I’ve never been in Cincinnati and I cannot compare it with the German original. And if I even would have been in Cincinnati, I could not compare it because I never went to the Oktoberfest in Munich. The reason for that is, that to me as a German, Oktoberfest is nothing special because there a lot of folk festivals spreading across Germany. Actually, almost every German town and city has its own fair. Therefore, I would like to introduce to you some other famous folk festivals in Germany which are at least as good as Oktoberfest.
