As spring comes around again it’s time for the men of Zürich to don tights and everyone else to take half a day off, get drunk and burn stuff. Yes, it’s Sechseläuten, the Zürich celebration of the coming summer. The main protagonist in Mondays festivities is the Böögg, a snowman effigy who’s head will be stuffed with explosive and placed atop a massive bonfire. When the bells chime six, (hence the name Sechseläuten) the bonfire is lit and the poor old Böögg is cooked alive. Keep your eye on your watch though, the faster the head explodes the better the weather over the summer so as the bells chime, keep your fingers crossed for an almost instantaneous explosion. And if the summer is bad, blame it on the Böögg.
