[Sunday in Switzerland] A holiday weekend and a bread experiment

This weekend is a holiday weekend since Monday is Swiss National Day.  Established in 1994, it celebrates the Federal charter of 1291, what is seen as the pact that formed Switzerland.

I asked my coworkers how Swiss National Day was celebrated.  They said "with fireworks and grilling with friends" or "like the Fourth of July".  I asked if there were parades and was told "no", but this page describing the Zurich events says there will be a parade.  I will let you know next week if and how the parade goes.

Today we avoided the rain and stayed inside.  I made a Butterzopf.  I made one from a mix, but it was very tasty, so I see no pressing need to try a recipe from scratch.  Here is the package with a picture of what it's supposed to look like and what mine looked like.
