Cologne News Cologne Carnival
Cologne | The Cologne Carnival Festival Committee abrogates Section 5 of the Cologne Basic Law: Nix bliev wie et wor. In this session, the old remains also the new Cologne triumvirate, so no news if it weren’t for a difference: The 2G and 3G junkies want to really celebrate Carnival again.
Prince Sven I., Sven Oleff, Bauer Gereon, Gereon Glasemacher, and Jungfrau Gerdemie, Dr. Björn Braun hope to be able to move through the halls in the 2022 session and since politicians up and down the country never tire of declaring that there will be no more lockdown, it can also be assumed.
So do the three have to be introduced again? For many years, Prince Sven I was a dancer in the Cologne dance groups Kölsch Hännes’chen, Kölner Rheinveilchen and De Höppemötzjer. As a master craftsman, he is self-employed and runs his own business, and in his free time he enjoys golfing and cycling. Gereon Glasemacher, the farmer, came through the stations, the children’s dance group Blaue Funken, Lyskircher Hellige Knäächte and maidservants to the old townspeople and thus to the peacock feather hat. Dr. Jörg Braun is a Jungfrau Gerdemie and works as a lawyer in a Cologne law firm. All three are borrowed from the traditional corps of the old towners.
So again: nothing remains like et what? No, everything just starts all over again, as if the 2022 session were a time warp like in “Groundhog Day”. Who does not remember the 1993 comedy film from the USA with Bill Murray, who is stuck in the time warp as a weather announcer and reports on the day of the marmot in the small town of Punxsutawney. But not just once.
Will Prince Sven I’s day begin every day with the song “I Got You Babe”? One thing is clear in the previously unseen film “And daily greetings the jecke animal”, everything starts all over again for the upcoming trifolium, which was already a trifolium: Now they are re-designated, a contract is signed on the eleventh in the eleventh the mayor, on January 7th is proclaimed and on early Ash Wednesday everything is over and it is then finally Zick eröm. But in between carnival is celebrated.
