Il-Borża ta' San Martin

Borża ta’ San Martin 2015

Għargħur Primary School Council will organise the annual Borża ta’ San Martin educational fund raising event.

Following last year’s success, the Borża ta’ San Martin will also include a fair-trade concept.

Being sold at €3.50, each bag will contain the traditional sweet bun (ħbejża ta’ San Martin), a few walnuts and hazelnuts, a tangerine or clementina and an organic & fair-trade date and walnut bar. The bag will also include information about fairtrade.

Traditionally, the Borża ta’ San Martin – a simple colourful cloth bag pulled with a string on top – was placed near the children bedside, full of hard shelled almonds, walnuts, chestnuts, figs, apples, oranges, tangerines, pomegranates, and the traditional San Martin bun hard glazed on top and with a liquored sweet stuck  in the middle of the bun. No wonder the children would happily chant the rhyme “ġewż, lewż, qastan, tin, kemm inħobbu l-San Martin”!

Order yours today! Orders are accepted till the 30th October.
