AN UNUSUAL ANNIVERSARY

IN GERMANY, THE MOST COMMON TRADITION DURING A BIRTHDAY IS TO WEAR CROWNS

Premier paragraphe

In Germany, the most common tradition during a birthday is to wear crowns, especially for the smaller children. Other less common, regional customs are that we throw bread flour on the head of the person who turns 16, an egg on those who turn 18 years, and we offer the “Sockenkranz” to the 25 years old unmarried men (the equivalent of the French “catherinettes”) which are dirty old socks referring to “Alte Socke”, meaning that the person has definitely passed his prime.
