Es hat sich halt eröffnet, das himmlische Tor ( Now as has been opened the heavenly gate) - YouTube - Tiroler Weihnachtslied - Tyrolian Christmas Song ( no English translation available - lyrics in Tyrolian [Austria and Northern Italy] dialect - belongs to the German-Bavarian dialect group )



Es hat sich halt eröffnet, das himmlische Tor
die Engelein, die kugalan ganz haufenweis hervor
die Bubalan, die Madalan, die mach'n Purzigagalan
bald aufi bald abi, bald hin und bald her
bald unterschi bald überschi, das freut sie umso mehr
Halleluja, halleluja, alle, alle, alleluja

Jetzt håb ma hålt dås himmlische Gwammel erblickt
es håt uns Gott Våter an Botn zuagschickt
Wir sollten uns vereinen zum Kindlein auf die Roas
verlåssn unsre Öchslan, die Kälber und die Goaß
verlåssn unsre Öchslan, die Kälber und die Goaß

Åft sein mir nåcher gången, i und du a,
kerzengråd nåch Bethlehem, juchheißa, hopsassa.
Seppele, du Schlanggele, nimm du dei gmöstes Lampele,
und Michl, du a Henn, und Jost, du an Håhn,
und i nimm mei foasts Fakkele und renn damit davon

Geh, Veitl, mir wöllen die Gscheitern hålt sein
Wir betn 's Kindlan ån im Ochsenkrippelein
Büabale, wås mågst denn håbn, mågst eppa dechta unsre Gåbn?
Mågst Äpfl oder Birn, oder Nussn oder Kas
willst Zwötschgen oder Pflaumen oder sist a sölles Gfraß?


Text und Musik: Die erste Strophe dieses Liedes zeichnete Karl Liebleitner (1858–1942) im Jahre 1898 vom Druckereibesitzer Hans Mößmer in Wien auf.

Les oeufs de Pâques roumains deviennent objets de musée et de décoration

Quand Ioana Matei apprit à décorer des oeufs avec sa grand-mère pour les Pâques orthodoxes grâce à une technique complexe à base de cire et de teinture, elle n'imaginait pas qu'un jour ses créations voyageraient hors de Roumanie.

"Les gens en ont assez des objets produits à la chaîne. Ils veulent des choses faites main, avec le coeur", explique cette quinquagénaire en dessinant des motifs floraux et religieux sur des oeufs de cane, en ce week-end de Pâques pour les chrétiens orthodoxes.

De jeunes Iraniens arrêtés pour des batailles d'eau à Téhéran

Tout le monde sait qu'il ne faut pas jouer avec le feu. Mais à Téhéran, apparemment, même jouer avec de l'eau peut vous attirer des ennuis. Voilà en tout cas ce que viennent d'apprendre à leur dépens plusieurs jeunes gens en Iran, arrêtés la semaine dernière par les forces de l'ordre pour avoir participé à des batailles d'eau dans la rue, organisées via Facebook notamment.

Girls run as boys throw water at them as part of traditional Easter celebrations in the village of Szenna, Hungary on April 2, 2010. Locals from Szenna celebrate Easter with a traditional "watering of the girls", a fertility ritual rooted in Hungarian tribes' pre-Christian past, going as far back as the second century after Christ (REUTERS/Laszlo Balogh)

The Picture: Haft Sīn (from Wikipedia, likewise all the following extracts)

Happy Nowruz!

Also spelled Norouz, Norooz, Narooz, Nawruz, Newroz, Newruz, Nauruz, Nawroz, Noruz, Novruz, Nauroz, Navroz, Naw-Rúz, Nowroj, Navroj, Nevruz, Neyruz, Наврӯз, Navruz, Navrez, Nooruz, Nauryz, Nevruz, Nowrouz,

Haft Sīn

Haft Sīn (هفت سین) or the seven 'S's is a major tradition of Nowruz. The haft sin table includes seven specific items starting with the letter 'S' or Sīn (س) in the Persian alphabet. The items symbolically correspond to seven creations and holy immortals protecting them. The Haft Sin has evolved over time, but has kept its symbolism. Traditionally, families attempt to set as beautiful a Haft Sīn table as they can, as it is not only of traditional and spiritual value, but also noticed by visitors during Nowruzi visitations and is a reflection of their good taste.

The Haft Sīn items are:

  • sabzeh - wheat, barley or lentil sprouts growing in a dish - symbolizing rebirth
  • samanu - a sweet pudding made from wheat germ - symbolizing affluence
  • senjed - the dried fruit of the oleaster tree - symbolizing love
  • sīr - garlic - symbolizing medicine
  • sīb - apples - symbolizing beauty and health
  • somaq - sumac berries - symbolizing (the color of) sunrise
  • serkeh - vinegar - symbolizing age and patience

Other items on the table may include:
