  Bavarians and Charivari
by globetrott

Charivari is a word often used in Bavaria ( today mostly as the name of a radio-station )
But mainly "Charivari" is all these small things hanging on a traditional hat or lederhosn, on a chain around the neck or arm, that male and female Bavarians wear with their traditional costumes.

And it could be any kind of a "hunting-souvenir" like bird-feathers, the teeth of an animal, horns of a wolpertinger ;-), Edelweiss prepared and conservated behind glass etc.

When you click on my picture, you may see the plenty of "Charivari" this Bavarian has fixed to his tradtional hat.
