Laternenacht 2009

Laternenacht is a tradition at the girls' school. In Germany, it is the feast of Saint Martin, who gave clothes and food to the poor. Laternenacht is translated as Latern Night. The school held a food drive, and the culmination is Laternenacht where the kids sing traditional songs about fall and their laterns which light the night during a processional.

Love the pictures! Zoe was happy to see the Swiss Cross on Grace's lantern! Wish we could have been there to celebrate with you!
