Glücklich Martinstag!

November 11th is the day that German children celebrate Saint Martin. This holiday is a reminder to be kind to one another. Since I am a German major, I went and helped my German teachers and their children make lanterns (as well as my own). We then lit our lanterns and walked around ECU campus singing German songs. It was a lot of fun even though it was cold and I'm glad I was able to experience it. For more info on the holiday here is a site explaining it :)
