The local bell ringers rang their way into my heart

A group of local children, dressed in their white shirts with hoods, go every year door to door, ringing their bells (Trychlen) and hoping for chocolate or money.

They are so sweet and grateful for anything they get.

Forget Halloween, this is the real Switzerland.

That's out in the country. Around here they ask for weed, whites and wine. Or, even worse, for you to join their church ...
