Time to take down your winter decorations
The commune of Saanen and the fire brigade recently took out a rather curious ad in our sister publication, the Anzeiger von Saanen. They are asking homeowners to take down their Christmas/winter decoration - they call it the 'Grünzeug' which literally translated means that green stuff - because it can cause fires and is not safe to have on your chalet after it is dry. Well, it doesn't look nice either so please take that green stuff down and turn your roof lights off... Yes mommy!
