We are looking forward to seeing you all at the Family Christmas afternoon on 8 December at the Swiss Church!

The afternoon will include the much anticipated visit of the Swiss Samichlaus and Schmutzli, singing of Swiss carols, and a traditional Räbeliechtliumzug. Please bring your own tools for carving turnips (Räbe). The vegetables and candles will be provided. There will also be a craft station for Christmas tree baubles which will make excellent Christmas presents.

In contrast to previous years, the Samichlaus will not call up children individually. You can go and see him at any time between 3-4:30pm and prepare a ‘Versli’ or carol to receive a little present. The Samichlaus is fluent in Swiss-German, English and French.

Let Carla know that your children are coming and contact her if you have any further questions!


See you soon,

Carla and the Swiss Church team
