I had a great time watching “The Sound of Music” the other night with my 3-year old. I’ve always wanted to go to Austria as a result of having grown up with this classic film. The lovely views of the green hillsides, the beautiful architecture, and then I saw Kurt and Friedrich sing “D0, Re, Mi” in their lederhosen…
There’s just something about the Bavarian traditional costume… Lederhosen is directly translated as “leather pants” and was worn by highland German and Austrian men. It’s rather cute on little boys and I guess on some grown-ups too.
There’s apparently been such a resurgence of interest in lederhosen, that these best-selling toys had to be made:
The perfect pocket toy – a wind-up, hopping pair of lederhosen
Gamma Deathbot Leder
Who wouldn’t want an electronic yodeling pickle?
It took great minds to come up with the remote-controlled, hopping and yodeling pair of lederhosen
So auf wiedersehen, lederhosen! We shall meet again, I’m sure.
