It is the time of the year when children in Germany make their own lanterns to celebrate the holy St Martin. The Laterne Fest is in honor of St. Martin, a soldier in the Roman army. One very cold day, as he was riding through the gates of a town, Martin saw a beggar shivering with cold as he was wearing only a few clothes. As Martin had no money or food to offer the poor man, he took his thick cloak and cut it into two, giving one half to the man. Some of the poor children of the town witnessed the event and ran back with their lanterns to tell the townspeople. This is how the tradition of a children's processional of lanterns began. In honor of St. Martin and his great act of charity.
At the end of the procession every child is handed a "Weckemann". The little dough figure you see in this picture.
I think I will bring some to the markets. I miss them anyway, so this is a good reason to bake them.
