Word of the Day 12/09/15 Fackeltanz (German)

Probably can't get much use for this word, but I know that if anyone can pull it off, it'll be someone from this community!

Fackeltanz (noun)
fackeltanz (fack·el·tanz)

noun German
1. a payane for a ceremonial torchlight procession formerly celebrating a royal marriage in certain German courts

Origin: German, from fackel torch (from Old High German faccala, facchela, from Latin facula small torch) + tanz dance, from Middle High German, from Old French dance

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
