prayer pretzels

This was a fascinating discovery for me! When I clicked this link I was expecting to find a cute craft using pretzels to help teach children about prayer, and actaully I learned something:

Pretzels were originally made by monks who would give them as a reward to children who had learned their prayers. Their shape was made to look like a childrens arms folded when they pray. Did you know this? I sure didn't. Fascinating.

I'll never eat a pretzel the same again.

Until next time,
