Nimrod Part 9: The real meaning of Ash Wednesday and Lent


Ramadan -- I know this is Islam and not Roman Catholic, but being that today is Ash Wednesday, I find it appropriate to reflect on other meanings of fasting. Create in me a clean heart.


Mohacs Busok (Mask-people from Mohacs town) The Busojaras (Hungarian, meaning "Buso-walking") is an annual celebration of the Sokci (Croatians) living in the town of Mohacs, Hungary, held at the end of the Carnival season and ending the day before Ash Wednesday. (Attila Kisbenedek)


“The Tradition of the Pretzel. Pretzels began in the 6th century at an Italian monastery. A monk was preparing unleavened bread for Lent and twisted the scraps of bread dough to resemble arms in prayer. He named his creation Pretiola, a word meaning little reward, and gave it as a treat to the children who recited their prayers.” - interesting story
