On December 6 Santa Claus visits the children here in Switzerland and in some other parts in Europe. He visits the families and praises the children and surprises them with tangerines, nuts, chocolate, figs, dates and gingerbread. In return they declaim a poem or sing a song or even play a piece of music with their instruments. Usually people make a little celebration even when the kids are not small anymore. That is what did yesterday. It is a tradition to eat what we call "Grittibänz" and of course I baked one as well. Emilie makes the most wonderful ones - I am not that good at it but let me tell you it was delicious all the same. Did you see the apples I scored and the candle I put inside? I like that simple decoration for this occasion a lot.
The dinner last Monday was a success. I think you really kept your fingers crossed! Thank you so much! I'll show you some pics in one of my next posts.
Wishing you a wonderful and hopefully snowy day!
