Lantern Love

This is a Swiss kindergarten tradition. It’s at the beginning of November when the sugar beets are harvested and it’s called “Räbeliechtli” (sugar beet light). The kids sculpture little lanterns at kindergarten or at home…

Then in the evening they all meet up at kindergarten and parade around the neighborhood with their lanterns, singing songs as they go along. After the parading it’s back to kindergarten, to enjoy some warm tee and gingerbread.

    These are so cute. When I was a child we carved turnips out for our Jack O Lanterns at Halloween ( I live in Northern Ireland). That was many years ago though, before pumpkins became popular. I remember that they took ages to carve!!!!
