Village Day experiences

Hello, is it me you’re looking for?

Whether it is or not, I am here. With a little colourful (note, UK spelling) report about our town’s (village’s)  Village Day, which gave yesterday for everyone the opportunity to socialize even more and know each other better. Despite the fact that everyone knows always everything about everyone else, or, it seems so.

It was a great saturday: a stage with live music, comedy, karaoke contest; cooking everywhere, on many spots outside above open fire; contests for young and old(er-,est), games, great drinks and fun colours. All that in gorgeous summer weather, around 30 C the whole day. All you could see happy people playing around, eating, baking, chatting (gossips for free!). No worries, no hurries. A place filled with joy, organised by the mayor, town hall, in collaboration literally with the entire village! Amazing.

A little photo report (mind the captions!):

Fun means different things for everyone…was painfully obvious at moments!

Well, I think the parents wondered this at first. The child friendliness of the presentation?!

The Country Oven is ON. Country Oven has been built in 2012 together with other towns, in collaboration, and opened with great ceremony.

And tasty things came out. Better presentation than the blow up lion… 🙂

‘The stage is OURS’…almost literally.

Oh yes, did I say there was REAL cooking involved…

‘Just checking…’- eating your food disguised as help, LOL. It’s OK, everyone cooked for everyone.

What I’ve seen and learned hereby is, great things happen when 1000+ people decide to live and not just exist together, in peace by conscious decision, and don’t give a f…feather about anything else for now.
