St. Martin's Day (Martinstag) commemorates commemorates Sankt Martin (c. 317-397), Bishop of Tours, who, as a young soldier, tore his cloak in two to share it with a freezing beggar. Today in many parts of Europe including Germany Sankt Martin's Day is celebrated by processions of children with candle-lit lanterns.
