A leader “Rolli” of a yodel group “Schuppel” runs in the snow in front of a farmstead during the “Silvesterchlausen” in the early morning in Urnaesch in the Swiss canton Appenzell Ausserroden on January 13, 2017. The “Silvesterchlausen” is a tradition of the Swiss canton Appenzell, where colorfull characters organized in groups called “Schuppel”, chase out the old year and welcome the new one. They run all day long from farmstead to farmstead, gather together to sing a jodel and great the farmers. A “Schuppel” consists of some “Schelli” and two “Rolli”, sometimes with female dresses and nice scenes over the head, despite the dress all participants are males. The Silversterchlausen run twice a year, first for the new Silvester on December 31, and then again on January 13, for the old Silvester following the Julian calendar.
