Czech Republic -- Green Thursday
With Holy Thursday commemorating the Last Supper, Czechs and Moravians celebrate the day by eating greens, such as salads and spinach, all day long -- there's a way to get kids to eat their veg! Known as Green Thursday, from the German word grün, meaning green, it is also believed to be an adaption of the word greinen, which means "to weep."
