Can we eat eggs on Thursdays
Fine recipes for Maundy Thursday
It is not entirely clear where Maundy Thursday got its name from. One possible interpretation is that “green” is not the color, but the old high German “grinan”, meaning “to mourn” or “to cry”. Maundy Thursday was so named because it is the fifth day of Christian Holy Week, the day of the Last Supper just before the crucifixion of Jesus. From a Christian point of view, lamenting stands for participation in the suffering of Jesus. Now, however, Easter is preceded by a 40-day fasting period during which meat, but also eggs and other luxury foods were forbidden. So the “complaining” can also be an expression for this long and arduous time. Maundy Thursday is therefore not a cheerful family festival. But if you take a closer look, there is still reason to celebrate. Because the closer Easter approaches, the more the bare winter landscape turns green and heralds the fruitful new beginning of the year. Green is the color of hope and it conveys the message that nature has awakened and is already offering a tasty harvest. Color and name are linked, based on a centuries-old tradition of serving green dishes on Maundy Thursday. Herbs harvested on this day are said to have a special healing power. According to ancient tradition, enjoying green dishes on Maundy Thursday also promises resilient health throughout the year.
