Gründonnerstag: Green Thursday

(pron. GRUHN DON-nur-SHTAWG) Holy Thursday is called Gründonnerstag: Green Thursday in Germany. Anyone refusing to eat green salad is in danger of becoming a donkey, according to Saxon tradition. To be on the safe side children may eat an entire green vegetable dinner on this day. See: The Green Man. (9)
