There are a few different stories about the origins of the New Years Pretzel. Some say that the New Year’s Pretzels were fashioned after the way in which German monks prayed. By crossing arms across the chest in the traditional prayer style, the German monks would pray for peace, health and prosperity for everyone in the surrounding village. Others say the the circular shaped pretzel is based on the old calendar sign for the winter solstice, which was a circle with a dot in its center. The central cross was added later to represent the four seasons. Another story tells of German children parading through the streets with pretzels tied around their neck. The children would greet relatives and exchange pretzels for good luck in the new year. No matter the story you favor, we can all agree that New Year’s Pretzels are a tasty and fun way to celebrate old world traditions! 🥨🎉🥨🎊
