Laterne, Laterne, Sonne Mond und Sterne

The Kinderclub has been celebrating St. Martin’s day last week, a tradition from the German speaking countries to remember Saint Martin of Tours, a friend of the children and patron of the poor. The legend about his saving a homeless person from freezing by giving him half of this cloak is well known to children in all parts of Germany. Just like the children in Germany, We made our own St. Martin’s lanterns and went on a short procession, singing “Laterne, Laterne, Sonne Mond und Sterne”!
