Yesterday was a legal holiday in the parts of Germany where the population is predominantly Catholic. Thus yesterday in Bavaria Corpus Christi (Fronleichnam) was celebrated. I remembered from previous years that traditionally mass is read outdoors and there are processions. Sure to stumble on some such activities, I got on my bike and rode to what I thought would be a likely destination, the pilgrimage church of Maria Eich.
I was disappointed. In fact, I didn’t see any sign of any kind of holiday activity so I just intended to cycle a little loop through the nearby woods before going home for lunch. But then, when not expecting anything for my holiday project, I came upon a crucifix with a little altar set up for Corpus Christi.
I left everything as it was and cycled home, mission accomplished.
Now for today: I think the Great Outdoors deserves a few more pictures.
The third week of June is Animal Rights Awareness Week.
It is still the month for Pollinators.
Let’s see, what else do we have? Filthy Fly Month. Also an entry for the Upsie Daisy Day. Oops, that was a couple of days ago.
Did you know it is also the World day to Combat Desertification and Drought?
We are having such fine weather. I hope I can contribute a few more special days before the month is over.
