Goaßlschnoizn, whip away the winter

"...Last weekend, in our very own little village (and I do mean little) The annual competition of the Goasslschnoizn, or "crack the whip" took place--and grew the population here by several hundred. This is a custom unique to Southern Bavaria (and I think part of Austria too?) Different groups compete against each other to see who are the best whipper-snappers, um..sorry, I mean whip crackers. It's a very old pagan custom to whip away the winter."
