Weltjugendtad Koln 2005!

Today marks the beginning of World Youth Day in Cologne, Germany. Today pilgrims will begin to arrive for a week-long festival of activities.

If you sound out phonetically the German word Koln, you will notice that it sounds just like the English word “Cologne.” My lovely wife (of German ancestry) pointed this out to me. Indeed it’s true, sometimes I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer!

In any regard, there is TONS of great info about World Youth Day at Amy Welborn’s site, give it a look here.

Expect a bonus entry later today regarding the other important event commemorated today.
