On Funkensonntag the Chrochner (school children) and the Fachilischwinger (boys, who raise the spark) go from house to house, say their sayings and wish luck. In the evening the winter is symbolically driven out with the burning of the spark. The date is easy to remember: Sunday of sparks is always the first Sunday of Lent. The spark fire (short spark) is an old fire consumption, which is still spread today in the Swabian-Allmannic area. A wooden tower is erected around the spark fir.
