Immaculate Conception

Regional holidays differ around Switzerland, and as a predominantly Catholic area, the canton of Ticino (where we live) celebrates the Immaculate Conception. This is the day that the Blessed Mother Mary was conceived (not, as generally assumed, the day Jesus was immaculately conceived).

So it is not a Come-to-Jesus moment...


but a Mother Mary celebration!

  1. You look cute, and gorgeous weather! We just know that in southern Germany...Bayern...they are heavy Catholic and have five more holidays a year than some of the Protestant states up north! Crazy!
