Maximilian schick went home with a cock

To the sound of the kirchweihaus the 20. Cock flapping organized by stefan groh, florian walther and patrick endres.

Under the lime trees in the center of the village maximilian schick from ebensfeld received the cock as first prize. Tobias bayer from unterleiterbach (ten-liter keg of beer) and jeremy ross from unterleiterbach (five-liter keg of beer) were successful as well. The proceeds go to a charitable cause.

The cock-beating is an old church tradition that was already practiced in unterleiterbach at the beginning of the last century, but has only been revived in recent years. The rooster was once considered a symbol of the evil spirit of the harvest, which took refuge in the last sheaf of the harvest. This spirit had to be destroyed by head.

Today, the people of unterleiterbach use a symbolic clay pot for this purpose, which is buried in the ground and which has to be hit blindfolded. Under the eyes of the audience, the candidates finally wielded the flail. The spectators provide for the disorientation of the participant with shouts: "left, left, right, right, in front, in front, back, back", sound came from all directions. .
