Kids and grown ups enjoy the Kids Festival in EAE

There were many exited faces, when the People from „Das kunterbunte Kinderzelt.eV.“ started to built up the inflatable playgrounds on 14th April. About an hour later two big colorful bouncy castles were set on the ground and the children cheered. Parents watched their kids playing while enjoying some Popcorn and sitting together in the sunny afternoon for a chat. Balloon figures and funny helmets were very popular among kids and teens and even among the grown ups.

EAE Hanau says „Thank You, Refugees“

Refugees make HEAE – Hanau a better place

Over months refugees have been busy to improve the HEAE in various ways. As workers they helped the staff of HEAE with many tasks, including the building of stockbeds in the flats or renovating the playground. Many tasks would not have been possible in such short time without their helping Hands.

Refugees took actively part in rebuilding the playground

Easter Holidays in Hanau

Eggs everywhere

During springtime, on Sunday the 26. and Monday, the 27.3.16 people celebrate the Easter Holidays. For Christian people Easter is one of the most important holidays. It celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ after the crucifixion, one of the most central figures in the Christian belief, whose story is written down in the New Testament. In Germany in many churches there are special Easter ceremonies during the Easter holydays.

Still there are many customs, like decorations made of colored eggs everywhere. Where do they come from? As it is with many very old customs, there is no sure origin of these customs. Even long before Middle Age colored eggs existed as a symbol for springtime and new life and were given as a present. The Christian Holiday and the tradition of the Easter egg would become one during early middle age, because both symbolize a new beginning.

Fasching / Karneval , the fifth season!

From 4th till 10th of February there is Fasching, often also called Karneval. People then celebrate merrily and dress up in funny costumes.

Actually Fasching has an old Tradition in Germany. Already in the middle Age People celebrated Fasching, with lots of noise and costumes. People believed, the noise and costume would drive away ghosts and bad Spirits.

At a later time Christian People celebrated this Event too and named it „Karneval“. For them it was the last big celebration before 40 days of fasting. The Name is a hint, it Comes from the latin words „Carne Vale“ which means „fare well, meat“

In 19th century another Fasching Tradition started. At that time political Actions were strictly forbidden. Fasching was the only exception: There People could talk openly in often humorous and political speeches. No one could forbid, as it it was just making jokes. This Tradition lived on until today.

Please help to make Fasching a peaceful and happy Event. Costumes, Jokes and celebrating are ok, insults and violence are not. For more Information please click link.  Let us celebrate as one big community!
