In Germany the 11th of the 11th (11th of November) marks the begin of the carnival season. Carnival is mainly in, but not limited to, Colognge and the surrounding area. Carnival generally ends sometime between the 4th of February and the 10th of March. The carnival season is often considered to be the "5th Season".
Activities on and after 11/11 include:
-Dressing up and going to a parade
-Listening to cheesy carnival songs
