Barbeque On Labor Day!

Chiemsee  Bavaria, Germany

Happy Labor Day Guys! It was a beautiful and sunny day in my neck of the woods although it was not so warm as I have expected. It was only 13°Celcius but because of the bright sun, we were having barbecue get together in my friends garden. That was great. We were having a lot of fun.

Do you know that Germans are fond of barbecue grilling in the garden? Yes, they are. Most of the foods that landed on the grill are:
  • chicken legs and wings
  • pork steaks and  ribs
  • beef steaks and ribs
  • Bratwurst / Bratwürste, Rostwurst, Thuringer, Nürnberger and other kinds of sausages

Chicken legs and wings and Bratwürste (sausages)

German Labor Day is on the first day of May. It is a no work day to most of us and there are lots of events around in the country like "Tanz in den Mai". It is a Maypole raising and dancing day where people are dancing around the huge pole. Maypole dancing is a traditional folklore dance here in Germany. Below are the videos on how the pole is being raised and how the people danced with it. Sorry, I have to delete the videos. You can Google about Maypole dancing online. Thanks.

The first photo was taken at Chiemsee, Bavaria. Here´s the link if you are interested to read my visit in one of the beautiful places in Germany. Thank you very much.

  1. Looking very gratifying. It is further tempting because in the picture you are practicing a natural grilling gadget that produces smogs. The outcome of the barbecue is appetizing than using an electric grilling machine without smokes ma'am Thelma. You've got a fortunate husband out there since you know how to prepare delicious foods as well as planting delicate flowers.

  2. I like this kind of grilling especially with the use of charcoal in our home country. I think it is more delicious than grilling in an electric grilling machine. My hubby and I are both fortunate with each other I should say. Thanks for your wonderful comment Shane.
