Green Thursday

In German-speaking countries, today is called "Gründonnerstag" ("Green Thursday"). The name comes from one of several suggested pre-15th century sources, including the liturgical colour green and the pagan celebration of the arrival of spring by eating green vegetables.

In our office, we have no green vegetables handy, so we have a basket of small chocolate eggs instead.
