Berchtold’s Day (Switzerland)

January 2

There are a variety of stories behind the origins and meaning of Berchtold’s Day (or Berchtoldstag). It is likely from a Middle High German word meaning “epiphanies.”  It especially occurs in Protestant regions where Epiphany has been abolished and replaced by a second day-off after New Year’s Day.
