Traditional German Festivities
Traditional German festivities are well prepared and celebrated all year around. Whereas the observed holidays are more formal like Easter and Christmas, other traditional German festivities are more low key like an Oktoberfest party in the backyard. Traditions and customs play an essential role during the cultural celebrations and are handed down from generation to generation. The ceremonies can vary depending on the region in Germany.
The saying “food and drink hold body and soul together” is for sure fitting for the Germans. It is very true during their traditional German festivities and festivals.
