Saint Martin

Saint Martin of Tours has become one of the most familiar and recognizable saint in Western Europe. The veneration of Martin was widely popular in the Middle Ages. In Belgium, on Saint Martin’s Day children traditionally receive presents from Saint Martin.

We will use his sword as a symbol and will perpetuate the tradition to gifted all the young ones on Nov 10th with typical Saint Martin’s buns (craquandoules, follard, voelaeren & cougnou). 

Also, it's clear that our name is an hommage to our house's previous owner :-)
