Pretzel Sunday         March 1, 2020 

Pretzels for Lent:  Early Christians prayed by crossing their arms & touching each shoulder. They also fasted strictly during lent making their bread with only flour, water & salt.  A monk shaped this in the form of praying arms for children, and the PRETZEL was born!
