Customs


City: Bad Eisenkappel

This custom is experienced as a memory of a large flood disaster in year 1180, in which the whole village was flooded, only the pilgrimage church of Mary in Trnje was spared. The custom of carrying churches is celebrated on the eve before Maria Lichtmess (February 2nd).
The churches are made from paper and wood. In the interior they are lighted with a candle, and attached to the stick. Taking joy litany like saying: \"Ante Pante populore, kocle VRATE cvile lore\", you first go to the parish church then continue to the castle bridge at the southern end of the market. There, the churches will be taken from the sticks and gently placed in the Vellach stream.

The custom should be encouraged to socialize and maintain friendships. And, of course, also to praise thereof. For us, the Bad Eisenkappel Kurent carnival figures, it is important that people are not afraid of us. Young and old should be happy when we give them gifts. Young children come to us after each performance and can touch and try our masks. So they get rid of fear and are pleased when we came back a year later. Every year have the Kurent carnival figures in Bad Eisenkappel and in spa/health resort their own performance. On 5 December the Kurent carnival figures are accompanied by St. Nicholas!
