No 667 Steinbach Nutcracker Bacchus

Bacchus 

My friend Hieronymus has a vineyard on the Rhine. As a winemaker he loves the lively jokes of our Rhinelanders — they are unsurpassed in this at carneval time, which begins every year on thell 11.11 at 11.11 a.m. and ends on Ash Wednesday. This is the time of the great fancy dress costumes. 

Hieronymus goes along as a Franziskan monk in his capuchin costume and sings the praises of the percentages of his wines which are far higher than the percentages offered at the savings bank. This quite logically means that you should put your money into wine rather than the bank. 

His nice, rotund figure brought Hieronymus the nickname )>Bacchus<( who was really the Greek God of wine. Nowadays in the E.E.C. sour wine may be sweetened — it’s better to remember Wilhelm Busch’s: 

Red wine is for old boys one of the best joys.
