Germany didn't agree to this foolery!


It's an ancient tradition in Denmark to light huge bonfires on midsummer's eve to ward off evil, but in the 1920's people started placing a witch made of cloth and straw on the bonfire. It's believed that the bonfire will give her an extra magical push that'll help her fly all the way to the Brocken mountain in the Harz region of Germany where she can party with all her witch friends.

Nobody knows for sure, but it's speculated that the idea to place a witch on the bonfire was a suggested by German workers in Denmark, and that's why they fly to Germany.

I say we should start having a witch-receiving celebration. Sounds like a good excuse to party. :D

I like the fact that Humon thought;

"Hm, I need just brother Germany in the first panel, establishing him alone....
So, what does he do when he's alone?
I know - eat sausages of course!"

:-D

It's amazing how SATW teaches us about traditions and national customs that are often unheard of in some places. A great place for geographical and geopolitical trivia. Sometimes a bit like the YouTube series "Geography now", which I recommend.
