In my hometown,when Christmas time is arriving,most homes,public places and even churches are cleaned and nicely decorated.No one,even those from other religions ever asked if the cleaning would be done only once a year.Here everything got questioned.And i would never expect the food served on a festival being of the same high quality as in a nice restaurant.Not here and not in my country.

@ mr Pascale,  with respect for your comment about 'free passes' for some of us commenting, about myself I can tell you that PN sometimes not publish my comments.  And I respect that. It is up to PN what to publish and what not. That is the way it works. Of course PN has a publishing policy frame work. As ( sometimes different) commenting readers we have to respect that.

Seems like PN is a bit selective now,when it comes to publishing comments.Except for one who obviously owns a free pass. One might get the feeling that the PN follows their own interest in publishing those fully loaded negative and sometimes derogatory comments.

Mr. Wiesel, I'm sure we would all be happy to comment about something positive. Unfortunately there are only stories regarding environmental destruction,  corruption on epic scale, etc. etc. etc. Nothing positive happening.

@ mr Wiesel: Kurt was asking questions. Do you remember the dis-quality and hygiene complains of the street food during previous Vegetarian Festivals? Some food sold as vegetarian was not even vegetarian.

Wiesel | 06 October 2018 - 11:26:24

And again cynical comment against Culture and Goverment. Mr. Kurt, why you are here if you never find something positive??

Great, more harsh chemicals flushed into the drainage system.

Is 'cleaning' over there a news item? Does it mean the rest of the year there are at that location no proper cleanings?  Just a question: Are there no Goverment normal daily cleaning kitchen rules as described  in article., regardless a festival, and checked, of course.?
