Back to School

Yesterday was the first day of the new school year. In Austria it is a tradition to present children who start elementary school with a big cardboard cone ("Schultüte"), prettily decorated and filled with toys, chocolate, candies, school supplies, and various other goodies. At the K.u.K. Court Confectionery Bakery Demel you could have bought a school cone at the "bargain price" of € 51,- ($ 66,96).

  1. That's a tradition I've never heard of on this side of the Atlantic.
