Every year at 3:15 p.m. on Fat Tuesday hundreds of children gather in front of Rapperswil’s city hall. The town's mayor’s has to ask: “Are all my boys here?” The kids reply: “One, two, goat leg!” Then the mayor and council members throw sausages, sweets, and pastries into the crowd. The origin of this custom goes back to the Middle Ages, when during the siege people gave food to hungry children.
