“Klimpermännche” Thomas Cüpper played “Am Dom zo Kölle”.

After a reading on the motto “Alles hat sing Zick”, which Alexander von Chiari read in High German and Christine Flock in Kölsch, city dean Msgr. Robert Kleine asked himself in his sermon whether one could be happy and happy in the face of the pandemic and knowing that you couldn’t celebrate in the session as usual. “Let’s not take our carnival away,” said Kleine and urged calm and serenity. The triumvirate should not be deprived of its confidence either. On the contrary, it is his job to share this confidence and joie de vivre with other people at the numerous social meetings.

The madmen moved in a small procession to the Shrine of the Three Kings.

As an expression of this confidence, Kleine had brought a surprise: “Klimpermännche” Thomas Cüpper sang to the quetsch “Och, wat wor dat was beautiful in Colonia”. The applause from the congregation was assured for both of them.

City superintendent Bernhard Seiger (not only) encouraged the triumvirate for the Seesion, because carnival is, in addition to celebration, also empathy, alert eyes and compassion. In his greeting he said: “We are all doing without a lot right now and in the next few weeks: Out of reason and responsibility. We feel, physically and mentally, what we are missing. “

And further: “If things go well, then the joy of everything that defines Fastelovend in the next few years will be great, perhaps greater than before. Because we appreciate it again. Because we feel how valuable the gift of community and closeness is. We will sing, dance and sway in a new way because we have experienced and know: Nothing can be taken for granted! “
