Oktoberfest

FYI, the original Oktoberfest in München (Munich)started yesterday. They are expecting 6 million visitors over the next two weeks. That must be more than they had at the Olympics this year with all their empty stadiums. I guess people prefer to have a really good time.

It's actually not that ancient. I think it started in the 1800s. I never cared for going there when I lived in Deutschland. But I wanted to go ever since I moved to the US.

No, I’m referring to the ancient pagan/pantheistic practice of celebrating the harvest time and preparation for winter upon which Oktoberfest is based…

RE: Oktoberfest

Actually it is more like a huge puke fest. My friend worked over there (in the Fatherland)for a couple of years and according to his recollection the sanitary conditions are rather disgusting. I would still go given the chance. [:D]
