Pretzel Sunday

19 March

Pretzel Sunday is observed on the third Sunday of Lent (4th Sunday before Easter) in Luxembourg, where it's called "Bretzelsonndeg."

A boy can offer a pretzel to a girl he fancies. If she accepts, the boy can visit her house on Easter, and expect to be given some eggs. In leap years, it is the girl offering the pretzel, and the boy offering the eggs in return later at Easter.

The custom has largely been replaced by Valentine's Day now.
