Rupprecht carnival in Cologne


People in Cologne start the "hot phase" of the "fifth season" traditionally on at 11:11 on the Thursday before Rose Monday (called Weiberfastnacht)

Although we only have one member in our team who was born and raised in Cologne, we follow the advice "When in Rome do as the Romans do" and so we do as the Kölner do - cheers at 11:11 in fancy costumes.
