Way-hay it’s Sunday here, so it must be time to do a bit of much needed virtual travelling. A journey which will take us to beautiful Switzerland.

So while we wander round this stunning land, why don’t we consider some ever so important Swiss Facts….

Switzerland virtually every year has at least two cities in the top 10 list of best cities to live on the planet.

Switzerland makes half of the worlds production of luxury watches.

Switzerland consumes more chocolate per capita than any other country in the world. It also produces more chocolate than anywhere else. They invented milk chocolate.

Switzerland is about 3 times smaller than New York.

In 2007 peace loving Switzerland accidentally invaded Lichtenstein. Thankfully the world didn’t spiral into a global nuclear war following the incident. If it had then the country has enough nuclear shelters to house its entire population.

It has a square national flag. You won’t find many other countries in the world doing that..

They have FOUR official languages. German, French, Italian and Romansh.

It’s also a little known fact that in Switzerland it is illegal for Dads to have an ice lolly.

      1. Lollies and ice teams always remind me of tantrums and tears … when you eat around the flake and then lose the rest of the ice cream, or when your lolly starts to melt faster than you can eat it, or when a seagull swoops in and nicks it out of your hand.

  2. WP is being mean to me! I really missed Swiss Sunday last night, and didn’t see it at all until I went looking for it😫😡
    I feel a little better now😘
    I NEED my Swiss Sunday! Preferably on Saturday Night, but Sunday evening works too.
    But why was WP keeping it from me?? Or shall we blame Orange Idjit & BoJo The Clown?😉🤣🤣💌

  3. Interesting facts about Switzerland, e.g. the chocolate facts (and, being a chocolate lover, I can’t believe I didn’t know these things!).

    Too bad about the rule about Dads and no ice lollies… 😉
