The Funkensonntag is much older than the Gidiobrauch, which can be proven with some certainty only towards the end of the last century, although folklore reports that Herisau boys had seen a similar procession in Gossau in 1845 and had then decided to carry out something similar in Herisau. Already from the beginning of the 19th century there are reports of Funkensonntag and the traditional menu: In many Herisau houses there is "Bacheschnette ond Epfelchüechli" on the occasion.
