Lanternfest

There’s a lovely tradition in Austria, called Lanternfest (Lantern Festival) which comes on the 11 November. The kindergarten children go for a walk with their lanterns, singing songs. Parents are invited and it’s a chance for the whole kindergarten to work together on a joint project, and parents to see how well the teachers are preparing their progeny for the next step in life, school.
