About the Carnival in Cologne (Koelnerkarneval)
A
Cologne Tradition

Carnival in Cologne is almost as old as the history of the city itself. But the organized carnival celebrated today only dates back 178 years. The Greeks and Romans celebrated cheerful spring festivals in honor of Dionysos and Saturn with wine, women and song. The ancient Germans celebrated the winter solstice as a homage to the Gods and expulsion of the evil winter demons. Later the Christians adopted the heathen customs. The period of fasting (Lent) prior to Easter was heralded in by "Fastnacht" or "Karnival" - carne vale = Farewell to meat! . . . .more
