Today is the 1st of August and in Switzerland its a very important day!

Swiss National Day celebrates the day when the three Apine cantons of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden swore eternal alliance to one another sense 1891 !

Through out the whole of Switzerland there are many celebrations the most comon beeing the amazing fireworks display wich happens at dawn . In the mountains people set fire to enormous bonfires that can be seen from a very long distance! All houses and public buildings are decorated with the swiss flag and bunting! There is food stalls and music everywere!

I hope to go out later and have some fun celebrating this day amongst the Swiss people!

Whatever you do today have a lovely day!

Love M
