Did you know?....

I thought I would visit for this last column of April and see what it had to share as far as events coming up these last few days of the month.

Did you know that April 26, according to the site is National Pretzel Day. There are all kinds of pretzels you can enjoy to celebrate the day. Thick, thin, crisp, soft, salted, mustard flavored. These are just a few choices. And if you can’t decide which to try….maybe sample each one.

The site also noted that “pretzels are believed to the world’s oldest snack dating back to 610 AD in Southern France. Monks baked thin strips of dough into the shape of a child’s arms folded in prayer. Add a little salt and the pretzel industry was born.”
