    In Zurich, beginning of the spring is celebrated every year in April by a big procession through whole the town. Thousands of spectators are waiting for hours in the streets for seeing the march-past of the numerous guilds.

    The members of the guilds assemble at 6 o'clock on a big meadow in the middle of the City. On this meadow, a snow-man is built up on a wood-heap.
