Frank, not MY crayfish parties - pisces do not eat anything that comes out of the water  :)
As far as I know, during the crop season friends are invited, you cook at least 400 or so and let your guests peel during dinner. As this is hard work and boring, each crayfish comes with a Schnaps. You get drunk earlier to feel not being hungry anymore... just curious
I've heard of this only from Finland and Sweden, that is why I asked Ivo whether Scandinavia could be ....returning to his finger bowls ...
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
