Here’s why I love Oktoberfest. First of all, any celebration known for beer and pretzel consumption is a celebration I will definitely show up for. Secondly, I’m pretty smitten with its origin story. The festival actually started back in 1810 at a wedding – the marriage of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. Basically, the party they threw was so epic that people were like, “We totally have to do this again next year.” And they did! Again and again and again, founding a tradition that’s now more than 200 hundred years strong.
