Swiss carnival is when the Swiss let loose with out-of-tune brass music and outlandish Fasnacht costumes. Switzerland’s carnival season traditionally begins on ‘Dirty Thursday’ — the Thursday before Lent. Lent typically starts 40 days before Easter, so the dates change each year.
Our school is also in the Fasnacht Fever, and recently had a successful Fasnacht event organised by the Parentsforum. It was great to feel a little bit more like home for most of our families. We wish everyone an enjoyable carnival season – Ho Narro!
