“Räbeliechtli”

“Räbeliechtli” (“Räbe” sugar beet, “Liechtli” light) is a swiss autumn tradition, where the kindergarten children carve little lanterns out of sugar beets and when it gets dark they do a procession through the neighborhood singing their “Räbeliechtli” song.

“ich go mit mini laterne,
und mini Laterne mit mir.
Am himmel lüchted dSterne,
da unde lüchte mir.
De güggel chrääht und chatz miaut,
eh,eh,eh,
La bimmel, la bimmel, la
bumm.”

The result
