Saint Martin

Every year on the 11th of November in Germany we celebrate Saint Martin, an important date when Sankt Martin de Tours, who helped the poor, was buried. In Germany this day all the children walk through the streets with their families, friends, teachers and their laterns singing the traditional songs (“Laterne, Laterne, Sonne, Mond und Sterne”; “Ich geh mit meiner Laterne und meine Laterne mit mir”). At SEK-Santa Isabel this year we created our own “Laterne” (latern) in 1st and 2nd grade to celebrate this typical tradition and of course we also sang the most common songs. We loved it!
