Cultural practice of wearing flowers every day

People would wear the flower(s) on their shirt, in their hair, or maybe around the waist. (Men, too). We might have a brighter, happier culture to see that every day on every one. But what […]

The German word for spam

What is the German word for spam? I was hoping it would be something awesome like, Schmerzlichmail.
