Swiss Confetti

Something that’s probably not that well known outside Switzerland is how much the Swiss just love Carnevale (we’re talking Brazil or Venice levels of passion): in Ticino where I live, not only a couple of the bigger cities have officially sanctioned Carnival celebrations with decades of tradition (and official nicknames, like Bellinzona’s Rabadan), but many (most?) of the smaller villages (comuni) have their own.

Costumes, parades, revelry, eating and drinking in the streets… and confetti. Obviously: can’t have Carnevale without confetti (coriandoli, for my Italian speaking friends), right?

But! Something the Swiss are famous for is, instead, how precise and detail oriented and organized they are.

Well… let me show you how they sell Confetti…

Swiss Confetti bags

…neatly packed in separate colours!

Now if you want to buy multiples and then mix them in a disorganized mess, suit yourself, but it’s out of our hands!
