Subject: Holidays and meeting themes
Who said there are no holidays in August?
If you have a holiday, you have a topic for a theme meeting!
The Swiss National Day (German: Schweizer Bundesfeier; French: Fête nationale Suisse; Italian: Festa nazionale Svizzera; Romanish: Fiasta naziunala Svizra) is 1 August.
It is celebrated each year at a local, municipality level (though certain events draw nation-wide attention) with town-wide paper lantern parades, bonfires, hanging strings of Swiss flags and fireworks.
