“Christmas at home in Switzerland is cozy and special. Being in the mountains reminds me of my childhood. When I was a child, I was always very excited about Christmas dinner. My mother would decorate the table with Lindt chocolates and I’d often try to steal them before dinner. Chocolate has always been a big part of my Christmas. I really enjoy spending time with family, given my busy work and travel schedule. I love to see the sparkle in my children’s eyes when we light up the tree and then go and play outdoors when it starts to snow.” – ROGER FEDERER Lindt Global Brand Ambassador
