Who is St. Martin?
In Germany, St. Martin’s Day traditionally marks the start of the festive season. Families gather to celebrate and restaurant across the country are booked out, selling a strict menu of nothing-but-Goose.
As Germany’s patron saint of the poor, there are two myths surrounding how Saint Martin became associated with the goose:
1. Out of humility, he hid in a barn to avoid being publicly ordained as a priest, but the noise of the geese he hid amongst gave away his location.
2. One of his sermons was interrupted by a flock of giggling geese.
Either way, goose is traditionally eaten on the 11th of November to commemorate Saint Martin, and then throughout the festive season.
