“Ich geh mit meiner Laterne” is the most popular song for “Martinisingen”, an old Protestant custom of Germany which takes place on the 10th of November, the eve of St. Martin’s day. St. Martin was known as a friend of children and patron of the poor, and this month is a passing from autumn to winter, and traditionally the period when poor people need food and support. The song is sung by children carrying lanterns, at the end of the day, especially in the evening, while they ask for cakes or other goodies as treats.
