Fête de l’Escalade and the Famous Marmite

Tonight we celebrated “Escalade” a traditional Geneva festival that celebrates the victory of the Geneva republic against the Savoy’s Army in 1602. Each year we buy a chocolate marmite full of candies. By tradition, the youngest and the eldest person in the room smash it.

Here is a link to have a better view on the full story that happened more than 400 years ago !!! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27Escalade
