St. Martin's Day

11/11/2014 17:48

A Czech proverb connected with the Feast of St. Martin  "Martin přijíždí na bílém koni" (trans. "Martin is coming on a white horse") - signifies that the first half of November in the Czech Republic is the time when it often starts to snow. St. Martin’s Day is the traditional feast day in the run-up to Advent. 

Czechs eat roast goose and drink the Czech version of Beaujolais nouveau, Svatomartinské víno, a young wine from the recent harvest. 

Enjoy the atmosphere of St. Martin's feast this week at many restaurants. Dobrou chuť :-)

P.S. I had this dish for lunch today....delicious :-)
