Lenten Pretzels for Sale

Lenten Pretzels

Pretzels are traditional Lenten food because they don’t contain any of the ingredients that were forbidden during Lent. In the Middle Ages, pretzels were the food of the poor during Lent; now they’re a popular food. Their shape reminds us of praying arms. In fact, the word pretzel comes from a Latin word meaning folded arms.

Third grade will be incorporating this Lenten practice into our classroom. The students will be making pretzels to sell to students during snack time.

What: Third Grade is selling Pretzels

For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in, I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you looked after Me, I was in prison and you visited Me.’…
