Sunday October 10, 2021

Culture : En fin de matinée, le 13, le 20 ou le 27 janvier, un radeau descend le Rhin avec à bord un équipage inhabituel: deux tambours, deux porte-drapeaux, deux canonniers tirant sans cesse des salves et le personnage principal, le Wilde Mann (le sauvage) qui brandit un sapin déraciné et sautille, le regard braqué du côté du Petit-Bâle sur la rive droite du Rhin. En aval du Mittlere Brücke (pont du milieu), il est accueilli par deux autres curieux individus: un lion se trémoussant sur deux pattes et un oiseau avec un grand bec. [Wikipedia]

All Saints' Day -
Monday November 1, 2021

Catholic or protestant : The day now honors all saints of the church, even those not known by name. The first All Saints' Day occurred on May 13, 609 (C.E.) when Pope Boniface IV accepted the Pantheon as a gift from the Emperor Phocas. Boniface dedicated it as the Church of Santa Maria Rotonda in honor of the Blessed Virgin and all martyrs. During Pope Gregory III's reign (731-741), the festival was expanded to include all saints and a chapel in St. Peter's church was dedicated accordingly. Pope Gregory IV officially designated the day in 837. Kriens, Hochwald [Solothurn], St.Gallen

Christmas Day -
Saturday December 25, 2021

Catholic or protestant : Since pre-historic times in Europe, festivities (bonfires, offrerings) were marking the beginning of longer hours of daylight with fires and ritual. The Roman festival of Saturnalia lasted several days in December (gambling and offerings). Germanic tribes also celebrated mid-winter (drinking and rituals). The Bulgarian (with Koleduvane) and the Polish (with Gwiazdka) perpetuate this tradition. Jesus of Nazareth was probably born in springtime (Reformists favour autumn). But in the 4th century, December 25th was chosen for the celebration of his birth by Pope Julius I (Bishop Liberus is also mentioned in 354 A.D.). Thus, a Christian element was introduced in the long-established mid-winter festivals. Before 1582, the Papal States and other Italian city states celebrated New Year’s Day on Christmas Day


St Stephen's Day -
Sunday December 26, 2021

Catholic or protestant : Christian remembrance of St Stephen, the first Christian martyr.
