Epiphany carol singers start singing in Essen.
Essen (dpa / LNW) – Some 1,000 carol singers from all over Germany are held in Essen on Thursday for the opening of the Three Kings singing through the Ruhr city. Up to Epiphany on 6th January gather nationwide about 500 000 Sternsinger money for charity. "For the food was a very special Capital of Culture year – but as far, mortal gold, as the royal visit, we had not yet," Bishop Franz-Josef Overbeck said at the opening meeting in the Cathedral of Essen. Subsequently, the carol singers covered with colorful robes, golden crowns and stars of cardboard through the city.
