NATIONAL PRETZEL DAY – April 26

National Pretzel Day is celebrated annually on April 26.  A bag of nice crunchy, salty pretzels or a big, warm, soft, cinnamon pretzel is the question of the day.  Either one is a great choice.

There are a few different accounts in the origin of the pretzel.  Most people agree that it does have a Christian background and they were invented by the monks.  According to The History of Science and Technology, in 610 AD, “an Italian monk invents pretzels as a reward to children who learn their prayers.  He calls the strips of baked dough, folded to resemble arms crossing the chest, “pretiola” (little rewards)”
