Sundays In My City- Bremen
Bremen, Germany is a city filled with history and traditions. Last night we came upon one of my favorite traditions-junnggesellenabschied also known as "STAG PARTY" or "BACHELOR PARTY". It's the last night of freedom for the Groom, so his friends dress him in some kind of embarrassing costume and the parade through the city where he sells various items or shots of a liquor in order to pay for the drinking while "PARTYING".
These young men were selling shots for 1 euro! It was a nasty apricot liquor and apple. I said no drink just a picture and I will pay. Their English was much better than my German, they were all excited to talk to an American. He was dressed in a bee costume with a T-Shirt to sign and hat with curlers......Okay whackadoo German boys. They were really nice, posed for my picture and one of them told me I was an ANGEL! (Hee, hee WHATEVER!)
I gave him a piece of marriage advice " Happy wife, Happy life"!!
Go visit UnknownMami and enjoy her city and many others. HAVE A WONDERFUL SUNDAY!
