Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day Glampers! While wandering the streets of Zürich, I have noticed a few signs that this holiday exists, to some degree, here. You would think so with all the chocolate around here. And that’s where I’ve seen the most red heart-shaped boxes.

So, at Coop City in Bellevue I saw these displays all next to each other. This one was obviously for Valentine’s Day.

IMG_4655I came up with this answer – Valentine’s Day can be loosely associated with the Grimm Fairy Tale of the Frog Prince (or Frog King) since it has to do with kissing, I guess. I actually think it just has to do with selling more chocolate. And what is wrong with that, I ask?

  1. Charlotte, eat a piece of Teuscher chocolate for me- I just realized my favorite brand is made in Zurich!
