I just got back from a whirlwind, 2 week trip around Germany (and a few other countries). As you should, when in Germany during the month of October, I went to Oktoberfest in Munich. It was awesome: giant tents, cram-packed with people dressed to the nines in their dirndls and lederhosen, binging on beer and white sausage, drenched in mustard.
We spent most of the day in the Hacker Pschorr tent, stuffing our faces with giant pretzels and the märzen brewed especially for Oktoberfest. I love any celebration where drinking out of steins and dressing up are a requirement. Can we just go ahead and add this beloved tradition to our list of holidays and observances? Pretty please?
