Mir gin klibberen

Have you seen the signs on the side of the road showing cartoon children saying „Mir gin klibberen”?

“Klibberen” means “to rattle” or “to clatter”.

Between Holy Thursday and Easter Sunday, the children (in general they are altar boys) walk the streets of their village, clattering their rapers 3 times a day; morning “d’Muergesklack laut”, lunch time “d’Mettesklack laut” and in the evening “d’Owesklack laut”.

With this sound, the children replace the church bells during 4 days, as the church bells have gone to Rome to confess their sins….
