September's "Oktober"-Themed Merriment


Every autumn, the Germans celebrate German Christmas, or "Oktoberfest." This is the weekend for many such festivities. So go, drink beer and eat wursts, and celebrate the virgin birth of European Jesus. For you pagans, there's also going to be a discussion at Politics & Prose about whatever it is Barack Obama does in Mississippi on Friday.
