The "Bénichon"

The Bénichon is a century-old and traditional celebration in the region of Fribourg.
At the beginning, it was a religious holiday whereby thanks were given to the gods for what had been harvested during the year. Over the years, the ceremony's religious side disappeared whereas the gastronomic and festive side remained. For six hours or more, you eat, drink and dance if you manage to get on your feet again!
