    Default Croissant Celebration

    GREAT ARTICLE ON THE HISTORICAL ILLITERACY OF THE WEST

    "To celebrate the defeat of the Turks at the Battle of Vienna, the bakers designed the croissant, a crescent shaped pastry, to commemorate the victory of the Christian forces over the Jihadists of Islam. As the bakers put it, they had the Turks for breakfast! It was the Vienna born, Queen Mary Antoinette, who introduced the croissant to France in 1770."

    I'm celebrating this trivia with a breakfast croissant sandwich with bacon. Then it's range time.

    I read once it was actually the bakers of Vienna, up at 0 dark thirty baking bread when everything else was asleep, that heard the Turks digging under the wall and alerted the city. They invented the croissant to celebrate.

    Thank you for sharing this worthy article.

    Those who donít appreciate history will suffer the consequences.

    I will enjoy a croissant in honor of our forebears and the Knights of St John.
