Sorry to derail a bit. What is it special today except for fireworks and parades

Am I allowed to mow the lawn without causing a friction with my Nachbaren?

This being one of the most sacred days on the Swiss calendar, disturbing the peace is particularly frowned upon. Infractions such as the mowing of lawns can be expected to bring a slew of indignant complaints. Your neighbors likely have their fingers poised on the noise police hotline.

Just make sure that your abject apology to said neighbors is voiced loud enough so that you can be heard over the ear-splitting howitzer-like explosions they are setting off. All. Day. Long.
