Millions scoop up gingerbread hearts for their beer-drenched lovers of the hour. Ich liebe Dich!
Most sing and dance to canned American wedding songs as they topple off the table-tops. Folks gorge on Hendl (chicken), extra salty to increase thirst for more and MORE brew.
Be warned: the women who haul the big jars of beer around are masochists who find pleasure in elbowing unsuspecting Oktoberfest virgins *such as myself* in the aisles.
A nice substitute for the insanity of India.
