If you are in Europe this week or next, you will find that many people’s schedules are augmented around Fasnacht in some way or another.  Fasnacht or Fastnacht, Carnival or Karneval, Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday, is a tradition which occurs in many parts of the world.  It is a tradition which falls around Easter or Ash Wednesday, the exact history is perhaps not certain, but has taken place for centuries.  This Photo is from last year’s Fastnacht in Basel. This year it is scheduled to begin Early Monday Morning, Feb. 18.
