April 8

A Flower for Names Day
The celebration of birthdays in Germany is a fairly recent custom.
In the old days ones names day was celebrated. Most often this was the day the saint you were named after died.
Today is the names day for Walter and out of old family tradition my father and I congratulate each other.
We're the last two Walters left in the family.
