SwitzerlandLeading the show is the Shaolin Wahnam Switzerland team with their traditional cow bells which are rung for happy occasions. These cow bells are also traditionally used to expel or banish unwanted things. This banishing is the reason the Swiss have brought the cow bells all the way to the wedding. By sounding them, all bad things and evil spirits are banished from the newly wedded, thus ushering in a marriage full of joy, health and happiness.
