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.

This week, Liam told us all the story of Sinterklass or Saint Nicholas. Traditionally, young children put their shoes in front of the door and sing Sinterklaas songs, They then put an apple or carrot in their shoe, as a gift to Saint Nicholas’ horse. The next morning, the children will wake up to find a small present in their shoes. Along with Liam, the boys all joined in on this tradition and were very happy to wake up to some treats Sinterklaas had magically left for them.
