At the Montreux Noël start out by nibbling some Swiss dried meats, then share a fondue along with "un verre de blanc" (from the nearby UNESCO site Lavaux Vineyards). Desserts will be easy (or difficult to decide) with such an enormous variety of sweets.

Can't make it to Switzerland in December? Wait until the month of love and snuggle in Zermatt under the Matterhorn.
