Cabbage Lore

Origins of Cabbage began in China and it was brought to Europe by the Celts in 600 B.C.E.

Cabbage prefers cool weather to grow and will split in two in hot temperatures. It grows pretty yellow flowers.

Cabbage is packed full of vitamins especially Vitamin C. It was used to feed the allied prisoners in Germany during World War 2.

The Man in the Moon may have evolved from the Scandinavian pagan god Máni mentioned in the Poetic Edda from earlier traditional sources and the 13th century Prose Edda written by Snorri Sturluson.

According to folklore, a cabbage thief became The man in The Moon when he stole his neighbor’s cabbage on by the light of the moon on Christmas Eve and escaped from the angry farmer and hid himself in the moon.

My guess is his desire was to make some Sauerkraut. 😉
