103. The burning of the straw at the end of the spring feast.





At the end of the feast of the spring, the Bouzouc or feast of the dragon of Berlaimont (It's also the name of the feast), the Gilles burn straw on the roads or on the places of towns, this chase the winter away. But I must say it is not very warm here 6°C in the night and 11° at the day.
They said on the radio there is snow in the Vosges, 400km away in the mountains.
One can say there is snow at the same time in both hemispheres and the earth is becoming warmer !
If you are looking in the middle of the photo you can see the fire in the middle. People are dancing around. At the end of the feast, the ancient mayor said with a nostalgic voice :"Again a
Bouzouc is over !". With a Bouzouc it means the yearly feast of this year and that every year with each feast of Bouzouc people are growing older. Especially the old people are nostalgic when they know the the yearly town feast is over, because they don't know if they are always alive in the next year, but we wish all the old people of Berlaimont to can prepare and look at the Bouzouc next year.
