I stood in the back with the little ones and let the older 4 participate. They made soft pretzels. The lady doing the tour was excellent. The history of the pretzel was fascinating. Did you know that pretzels were made by monks? Let's see what I rememeber..1. The three holes represent the Holy Trinity.
2. The Twist somehow represents marriage
3. The pretzel upside down represents prayer.
There was more but I forget...
We left the pretzel place and wandered back to the van. The kids had fun checking out the window displays. The theme was "The Wizard of OZ" and "Red, White and Blue".
Lititz really is cool. But it is also very touristy, I prefer the more "real" experiences.
