Oktoberfest or Ocsober

Ironic really that October is chosen for two “festivals” which have exactly polar opposite objectives.

Oktoberfest – that German celebration of beer – which we celebrated last night at the University Club – complete with German dancers and Oom Pa Pa music, sauerkraut and sausages… and what’s with the cut up socks?

Ocsober – a new festival of sobriety.  Which I must say I completely forgot about as I sat there last night with my glass of Shiraz.  What?  Not beer?  C’mon you know it is Belgian or nothing for me.

Which will you take part in?

  1. Hmm……..can’t say I had to give that one much thought. The celebration of beer of course! I did once attend the real thing in Munich but that was in another life.
    Like you I much prefer Belgian but hey, go on, twist my arm!!

  2. I’d like to say Oktoberfest but since my kids put a damper on my social life, Ocsober fest is more likely. I miss beer but there’s nothing worse than waking up to screaming kids when you have a hangover.

  3. The cut away socks are so the ankle slaps resound during the dancing. With socks covering the sound would be muffled. i love those slapping dances.

  4. Ocsober – you got to be jigging me and OKtoberfest – for the food except I don’t eat sauerkraut and beer nor raw sausage.
    I have never heard of Ocsober though good on those … who can
