New Year’s Eve Lausanne Cathedral Switzerland

There is nothing the Swiss in Lausanne like better to do on New Year’s eve then to pretend to burn down their cathedral, a beautiful structure dating back to the 12th century. Lausanne Cathedral, Maybe it really is on fire, Switzerland 01341 I’m not sure why they do this but it appears that it has something to do with the fact that they still have a night watchman keeping an eye open for any fires that start in the city. This was a common problem when the city used to be constructed in wood rather than stone. Copyright Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk .
