Cleaning-week – a very special Swabian tradition
Hello, my name is Charlotte. I was born in Schorndorf. Therefore I´m a real swabian girl. But my family isnt´t from Schorndorf. During the second world war, my mother´s family lived near Berlin. But after the war, they couldn´t stay there. So they found a new home in Schorndorf.
My favourite swabian tradition is the „Kehrwoche“, it means something like „cleaning-week. Every saturday, there is one person in the menage, who must clean the whole house. And when you forget the cleaning-week, the other swabian people are going to be angry!
Swabian language is different from Standard “High” German

It is believed that girls who go throuugh this ritual succssefully, before they ‘’touch’’ a man, become very good wifes.
POPULAR TALE BY KROBOS: If you don’t have a wife then you must sleep on a dinny table.
Meaning : If you are not married and they are preparing a food you must be in the house so that you can have your portion but if you go to town to play and you are back don’t ask anybody for food.
