I totally hate it when some group basically hijacks a tradition, a "something" or other and ruins it for the rest of us, since suddenly it is tainted.
(like here wearing folk costumes is considered "völkisch" (PeDe, you probably know that word?) which is associated with Nazis, I heard people saying that the best thing with Corona was that those "völkische" festivities like the Wiesen and the Wasn couldn't take place)
Yup, I heard it as well. When I was young, I was never into Trachten in general, my late mom was, and my sister still is. Only when I moved to the states, it somehow hit me, and I ordered several Dirndls - gave me a feel of home. And now I like to wear them...I even have Lederhosen for women
It's always and everywhere the same, isn't it?! Stupid people are what stupid people do/say. A handful (metaphorically speaking) of idiots ruining it for the rest of us.
