More doughnuts

Love songs for young lovers

On the Sunday before Ash Wednesday it was the tradition to sing to young lovers, or recently engaged or married couples. Groups of singers used to go from couple to couple singing romantic songs, for which the couples thanked them with doughnuts and wine, lowered down to street level in a basket. The singers and musicians then shouted out "Chrööpfelimee" demanding more doughnuts.
