Wow, some nice big bonfire! Is there a straw doll it it?

Here this kind of driving out winter is called a Funken. Some villages have such a Funken, but it is done the Weekend after the Ash Wednesday, and there is no ceremony around a special torch. It was long agao most about the villagers getting together burning a pile of old stuff not befitting for indoor herd fires, most important all the used willow brooms from the carveval season, along with the winter witch. Today it is more about having a last loud carnival revelry and make money by charging for parking and selling lots of bratwurst to onlookers....
