dance ban on good Friday. That sounds a little anachronistic in a time in which Protestant and Catholic Christians make up only just the majority of the population, and more than a third of all German undenominational. But the holiday laws of all Federal States, that "Silent days", for example, not dancing. There are a different number, in Hamburg, there are three, in Rhineland-Palatinate, five ten. The good Friday in all countries.
And not only Dancing is prohibited. Sporting events, fairs and markets, film screenings, and all of the public events that do not serve the "assessment of a holiday, or a higher interest of art, science and popular education".
