Today Nuri went to look for a wedding dress in Boxmeer. Since I’m not supposed to see the dress, after dropping off Nuri, my mom and my mother in law, me and A. went to the city center of Boxmeer to spend some time there. Near the bridal shop we ran into this little statue of the little bride. She stands for all the little brides that take part in the ‘Holy blood procession‘. That is a Catholic procession, dating back to the middle ages that is still being performed to this day.
Want to know more about the Procession of the Holy Blood in Boxmeer? There is a website (only in Dutch, I am afraid) with lots of information about this procession.
