Forecast

Forecasters particularly like their job when it comes to forecasting the impact an area of high pressure has on our weather! Only in the morning will some patches of ground mist and low stratus be evident. They will then be the victim of the warm September sun allowing fantastic weather for the rest of the day.

Tendency

On Saturday, the beautiful weather conditions will remain! Only in the evening will a few clouds move in. They will persist on Sunday and Monday, but they will do no harm.

Easter tombs - a Mediaeval tradition

Tombs inside the church at Easter?  That was a tradition that was very much frowned upon by Emperor Joseph II who, thus, promptly banned them. The custom of transforming the church chancel on Good Friday and Holy Saturday into a Holy Sepulchre originated way back in the Early Middle Ages and, after the death of the Emperor, the tradition was quickly rekindled and still exists today.

For some time now the practise of recreating the Holy Sepulchre has been enjoying increasing popularity. Tombs that have been in disuse for a long time are taken out of storage, restored and placed in position in the chancel, sometimes at the beginning of Holy Week, sometimes later on Maundy Thursday. They generally remain on display until Easter Monday, but sometimes even stay in place over the Octave of Easter, i.e. until the first Sunday after Easter.

The tradition is particularly observed in the villages of Axams, Igls, Patsch, Natters, Mutters, Götzens, Birgitz, Kematen and Oberperfuss.
