Did you know that today on Ascension Day it is a tradition to get up very early to make a bicycle tour? This is called ‘dauwtrappen’
treading the dew). In some villages in the province of Noord-Brabant marching bands will go around the village at 6 o’clock in the morning. Back in the days people used to get up at 3am to sing and dance barefooted on the grass to tread the dew because of its cleansing healings.
