Yesterday they prepared the stake for the yearly „Funkenfeuer“ a tradition in our region.
The stake is half way on the hill , where there is a church situated. When the night starts , there are about 100 or 200 people marching down the hill ( the number of people differs)
All of them have torches in their hands , which they throw afterwards in the stake. On the top of stake there will be a witch, a symbol for wintertime , which they want to chase away while burning the stake.
