Escalade Marmite Ceremony 2011
We got home from our road trip with our safely-carted chocolate marmite for Escalade, and then actually celebrated on the right day - December 11th. The battle took place on the night of the 11th to the 12th of December, 1602. So you could go with either day - but why wait? We were only missing Jason (for the first time), but he wasn't going to be back in Switzerland until January 6th, so there was no chance of him joining us for this. Sigh. So we sent him a picture and got on with it.
Notice the piece of chocolate in the air in the 3rd photo, and the still-intact Genevois shield at the end, unbroken after the battle... all so symbolic. "Struck down, but not destroyed." (2 Cor 4:9).
