Swiss National Day: 1 August (fixed date)
Since 1891, 1st August has been celebrated as a national holiday in Switzerland. The date is derived from one of the first treaties signed around 1290
between the three cantons of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden, which formed the core of present-day Switzerland.
Well, apart from the fireworks and lantern processions, August 1st is also a day for barbecuing in the garden.
Already taken care of? If you are invited, perhaps it's time to order a bouquet for the hosts as a thank-you for the invitation,
perhaps in summery yellow tones, colourful fireworks nuances or even in matching red and white.
