Fun Fact
Did you know...

that Carnival in Cologne is almost as old as the city itself? It's been celebrated for centuries in various forms, but only for about two centuries in its current rendition. It may have been a homage to the winter solstice or a marker for the beginning of Lent season - the word Carnival stems from carne vale meaning “Farewell to meat!”
