Germans celebrate Hexennacht and dance into May

Germans celebrate Hexennacht and dance into May

The night of April 30 in Germany marks Hexennacht, or “witches night.” In Germany it is celebrated to say good-bye to winter and welcome spring. Off-base residents may experience some funny and strange things. They must keep an eye on their homes and cars since it is custom for children and teenagers to play tricks on the neighbors. Popular tricks are the wrapping of cars with toilet paper, and the spraying of doors, windows and cars with shaving cream, mustard and ketchup.

Kaiserslautern wins in dramatic fashion; Ramstein ‘In the Pink’ in Softball

Kaiserslautern wins in dramatic fashion; Ramstein ‘In the Pink’ in Softball

Kaiserslautern junior Abby Young toed the pitching rubber preparing to throw what she hoped would be her last pitch on the glorious sunny Saturday afternoon. Holding the ball in the glove against her belt, she took a quick glance around the infield and saw that the bases were occupied by players wearing the wrong color uniforms. Her teammates in the dugout were vociferously encouraging her, as they had all day. She took a deep breath, looked down at the dirt to gather her thoughts and clear her head, then focused on the open mitt target given her Sky Flanagan for the 150th time that day. Young was exhausted and having trouble finding the strike zone. She entered the inning ahead 15-10, but because of fatigue and pressure, the next five hitters reached base, four by bases on balls, and the Kaiserslautern lead had shrunk to just two.
