Today we celebrate our national day. It is celebrated with fireworks, bonfires and family get-togethers.
The houses are wonderfully decorated and the place is generally all dolled up!
I will take some photos tonight of the procession that the children of our village will make with their lanterns to the place on the side of the alp where a huge bonfire will be lit as a signal like so long ago to warn villages on the opposite side of the lakes and alps to take a stand and fight. (much like in Mulan and Lord of the Rings).
On my WIP side of things:
I have been really busy with the Ravellenic Games since last Friday and as such haven't worked on anything else this week.
My entry into the sweater triathlon is growing quickly. Tomorrow I will be starting on the sleeves and have the end firmly in my sights!
On the reading front:
Well, I couldn't bring up the perseverance to finish off "The Passage" and so in the true spirit of the Swiss holiday, I have started reading Erich Von Dänicken's "Chariots of The Gods?"
So far I am enjoying the book and he has some very valid points. We have Von Dänicken's Museum close by and my girls couldn't visit the place often enough! (If you click on the book it will take you through to Book Depository where you can read the various reviews).
I will be sharing this post today over at:
