first time since many years that i went for the carnival parade here – the curious daughters, wanting to collect sweets, being the main motivation. and many of the fanciful costumes where a joy to look at.
but really alarming was the amount of alkohol beeing consumed also by minors (12 years upwards) – especially as the police was leading the parade. don’t misunderstand me as party pooper, but certain limitations are out of discussion. and nobody should deplore any more underage victims of binge drinking if it gets tolerated at such events in bright daylight. all this is only cheap lipservice.
