Lumpen Ball
The German translation of Lumpen is "rags" or "ragamuffins." Fasching is the German version of Mardi Gras. The Lumpen Ball (also known as Hobo's Ball or Rag Ball) is always held after Fasching because after you spend all of your money on your Fasching costume, and celebrating all that night, you must go to the next dance as a bum because you have very little money left after Fasching.
