Gare aux paniers !

A Luxembourg tradition if ever there was one… ‘Pretzel Sunday’ (Bretzelsonndeg) falls this year on 14 March. Custom dictates that a man should offer a pretzel to his sweetheart and – if the sentiment is shared – in return he’ll receive eggs at Easter. If not, he’ll get an empty basket instead (‘De Kuerf kréien’) – another way of saying “you’re dumped!”
