With these old appenzeller tradition is the old year expelled at 31.12.07 and 13.01.08 (old sylvester). There are bad and beautiful "chläuse". This move by land from house to house and give her yodel the best. See here

Thank you for the link Urbi it was fascinating to read and learn about something new to me (it's obviously a very ancient tradition though). Will you be taking pictures of those creatures to upload??? :D :D :D

Unfortunately, I have these images only on paper. Unfortunately. Perhaps I am 13.01. After Urnäsch and make only a few pictures for you pam! The tradition there is only regionally, and not just with us, although only a short distance away.

I'll cross my fingers that you run into some and if not I thank you for telling/showing me about this tradition Urbi! :D

Aha! I thought you were sort of bird magician earlier on with the chickadee! Food is the word,even so they are so trusting

Lilypon on February 7, 2008

You figured out my tricks of the trade! ;D They are very trusting and I get a natural high when they land on my hand! :D
