It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

No, not Christmas, silly. Swiss Days. Which is almost better. Get your lederhosen and Pinocchio cap and prepare yourself for the shopping experience of the year.

p.s. When you go--don't forget to buy yourself a Swiss Navajo Taco (how they came up with that I have no idea--must have been when the Europeans came west--or maybe when Pocahontas went to Europe? or maybe just when the Midway 1st ward relief society was planning the menu and were trying to make the main dish fit into the theme) anyway, they're good.

p.p.s. Don't show my dad, Lindy the English Teacher, this post. My grammar is atrocious. And one time when I was 7 we went to Swiss Days and waited in line for nigh unto an hour for one of the above mentioned Swiss Navajo Tacos and after I got one and was making my way to the table...wouldn't you know the dang thing slid off my plate into the dirt? He yelled. I cried. It was traumatic for all involved. Took me 3 years before I even dared go to Swiss Days again.

p.p.p.s. But that story wasn't to say that my dad is a tyrant. He's a real sweet guy. Really. Just don't drop a taco around him.

This is hilarious! I have never been to swiss days. But I think I may give it a try this year.

I hope it lives up to everything you say it does and more.

oh for the days when we went to Swiss days together! That was so much fun. You'd better take me again sometime. I'll carry one of the boys. Heck, I'll carry two of the boys if you fly me out right now!

Oh come now! Your dad would NEVER raise his voice. I don't believe you for a second. :o)

Rachel, at the next ward party I dare you to try it. Drop a taco right on his foot and see what happens... ;-)

Navajo taco... ugh. I have not DARED try one up there. "Navajo" and "Taco" just don't go together. I usually play it safe with a tasty scone or a Swiss cheese chicken sandwich. I do think they are a little stingy with the coke around there though. It is practically a sacrament cup! Come one people. Those Mormons need their Diet Coke!

I happen to know that your dad is a great teacher, and I hope my own grammar can be evidence of that.

Oh, and so is your mom.

Dude, I am a fully Williams educated individual.

Yeah for Swiss Days!!! Love it, and I love the "Swiss" Navajo Tacos.
They are a little pricey, but hey what "carnival/fair/extravaganza" type food isn't right?
Hope to see you there!

Hilarious! We love the Navajo tacos too. They are actually mentioned in our Swiss Days Times News Paper. If you end up going here is a link to the schedule.
