Women in disguise will storm Ramstein-Miesenbach town hall at 11:11 a.m. Thursday to start “Altweiberfasching” celebrations. It’s one of the craziest days during Fasching season and literally translated it means “old women’s carnival.”
People who like to dress up in fancy dresses or costumes and be somebody else have until Feb. 28 to do so. They can do it as long as Germany celebrates its “fifth season” or “crazy season.” Different areas in Germany have different names for this season of disguise, being crazy and wild, cheering up and having fun. In the Pfalz it’s called “Fassenacht” or “Fastnacht,” in Bavaria it’s “Fasching” and in the Cologne area it’s “Karneval.”
