On the weekend we attended Johannesfeuer Celebration at St. John's Lutheran in Springvale. There are some interesting posts on it if you care for a bit of a search around the net. It has ties to both the Pagan and Catholic calendars ...

But we were there to celebrate the birthday of St. John the Baptist. First there was a traditional German dinner of yummy wintery pea and ham soup and bratwurst, followed by a bonfire, Gluwein and a lantern walk. While of course singing German songs.

Tori had fun meeting up with her friend Hannah. It was bitterly cold outside so the toddlers had about 5 layers of clothing on.

The challenge was to teach them to hold their lanterns up off the ground and to try and not burn anyone with their candles.
