Swiss National Day

The street lamps on the main street in Villigen have been decorated for Swiss National Day.

Back in 1291 (no, not a typo) "three Alpine cantons swore the oath of confederation" on August 1, and this is considered to be the birth of Switzerland. It was only in 1993 that the day was legally established as a paid holiday.
