Fröhliche Ostern!

10 04 2007

Young pilgrims dressed in traditional Bavarian clothes ride during the traditional Georgi horse riding procession on Easter Monday in the southern Bavarian town of Traunstein April 9, 2007. Since the early 16th century, farmers have taken part in the pilgrimage to bless their horses. The roots of this tradition go back to the legend of Saint George, the horsemen’s patron saint. Link
