Today is Ascension Day, marking Jesus ascending into heaven. Do you do anything to celebrate this?
I don't remember having to go to mass or refrain from eating meat or anything different. But here in a place I don't find to be very religious it is a major holiday. I know I have mention this before, my teacher said a lot of people here do not claim a religion because they are automatically taxed from paycheck.
It is also Father's Day (Vatertag) in Germany...My husband is off work. All of Germany is shut down and Friday is also a day off for many they call it a bridge day. Bridge over to the weekend...okay I seriously have never heard it referred to as that. I said to my husband ...do we even do that or call it that? He said of coarse it's like the day after Thanksgiving...I said you mean Black Friday! So back to Vatertag aka Father's day here according to my google source...it's a time when men gather together and take part in outdoor actives like a walk in the country or horse and cart ride...WTF century is this ? So tomorrow there will be men gathering and us women folk can't go shopping or dine anywhere because everything is closed...there is restrictions on alcohol selling and public performances and DANCING!
So tomorrow I will not be:
performing in public
What's left to do?
Laundry, cooking, cleaning.....
