Yesterday, I went to see a "Perchtn" run, a very ancient tradition here in upper Bavaria. If you are curious about what it is, go here.
Just before it started, a heavy hail occured, but as the "Percht" is related to "Frau Holle" (Mother Hulda) and as mother Hulda is responsible for snow and hail, this was o.k.!
I parked my car s o m w h e r e in the village where the run started. ( I don't know the village, although it is nearby). After having gone for about 45 minutes with the whole crowd, I had difficulties to find my car again...I walked around for another 15 minutes or so, and finally I found it...that was "Perchtn" magic, wasn't it?
