Sunday 3rd December will be the day when ‘Samichlaus & Schmutzli” will be visiting us in Adliswil. I often heard and also confirm that this is one of the most beautiful Christmas parade in Kanton Zürich!!! I still remember the first time my son went up to one of the Samichlaus and told him a ‘swiss german rhyme’. He received for his effort a few sweets and a grittibänz! I didn’t understand a word of it but I still think it was and is a lovely tradition to have!! The parade will start on Sunday at 17.30. More information can be find on the association’s website.
Christmas for me it’s also the time when we cuddle up in bed with the children and read one of many french christmas stories (la petite fille aux allumettes, la nuit de noel, and so on…). Those are my memories and I’m sure you all have yours and your favorite Christmas story!
So to celebrate Christmas the ‘Auslander’ and the Swiss way I’ve decided to organise a ‘Christmas Stories & Craft’ day at Crafty Hands on Sunday 3rd December.
With the help of wonderful mums living in Adliswil for many years now but coming from Italy, England and France/Côte d’Ivoire, we will have three great Christmas sessions where you will enjoy listening to them reading ‘maybe your favorite christmas stories from your home country and then we’ll make a ‘christmas tree ornament with felt, buttons, rubons, glitters and so on. To close each session, we will also have the chance to listen to and learn from other wonderful mums from Adliswil some ‘swiss german christmas stories, songs or rhyme that you could then recite to Samichlaus at the parade!
Open to all ages but children under 6 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
Each child will leave the session with their ‘handmade’ christmas ornament and a christmas treat!
Coffee/tee and homemade cakes & biscuits can be purchased from our kitchen.
