Edelweiss, Edelweiss, every morning you greet me
Small and white, clean and bright
You look happy to meet me
Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever
Edelweiss, Edelweiss, bless my homeland forever


Sitting cross-legged in a circle, each person places their left
hand face up between
their left knee and their neighbour's right knee about a foot off
the ground.
Everyone places their right hands, palm down, on their right
neighbour's upturned
left hand. To the music (so these actions fit half of one line of
the song)---- with
your right hand, first you hit your neighbour's left hand, then
your right knee, your
left knee, the bottom of your left hand and then the top of your
left hand twice.

E.g.: for the line "Edelweiss, Edelweiss", you'd go through the
actions twice.

The really hard part is switching directions. Usually initially
the switching starts at
the word blossoms (from Blossoms of snow.....) - so your left
hand is now doing the hitting and the right hand remains
Once they and you feel
comfortable with that you can switch every time (therefore you'd
switch twice a line).
