Dear IN-Friends,

we would like to introduce another tradition of November called St. Martin’s Day or St. Martin’s Mas followed by its customs and habits.

St. Martin was known as friend of the children and patron of the poor. In some countries, Martinmas celebrations begin at the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour of this eleventh day of the eleventh month (that is, at 11:11 am on November 11). In others, the festivities commence on St. Martin's Eve (that is, on November 10). Bonfires are built and children carry lanterns in the streets after dark, singing songs for which they are rewarded with candy.

The goose became a symbol of St. Martin of Tours because of a legend that when trying to avoid being ordained bishop he had hidden in a goose pen, where he was betrayed by the cackling of the geese. St. Martin's feast day falls in November, when geese are ready for killing. St. Martin’s Day was an important medieval autumn feast, and the custom of eating goose spread to Sweden from France. It was primarily observed by the craftsmen and noblemen of the towns. In the peasant community, not everyone could afford to eat goose, so many ate duck or hen instead.

Wheater you are craft or noblemen, you are cordially invited to celebrate this medieval autumn feast by eating an original Martin’s goose menu and drinking nice beverages for a special package price of Protected content pp and prepayment by my WeChat:
