An old custom from yesteryear developed into the holiday of Flitch Day.
Dunmore Piory, England. FLITCH DAY. Beginning in 15th century, the monks offered a "flitch" of bacon as prize for any married couple who could prove to a jury of bachelors and maidens that they had lived together in harmony and fidelity for the past year. Very few took home the bacon.
This is where the phrase "bringing home the bacon" came from.
Even though Paul and I haven't been married for a year yet, we figured we would pass. So we rewarded ourselves with bacon for breakfast.
(Our toaster is broken and sounds like a lawn mower..that's my excuse for the over done toast)
And Paul finds out about his full-time offer next week!
Exciting things are happening in the Knight household.
