Traditionally, St. Martin's was the tenth day on November 11th. The taxes were formerly paid in kind, even in geese, since the approaching winter time made it possible to feed the animals only in a limited number. On this day began and ended also employment relationships, leases, interest and pay periods.
Land lease contracts still often refer to "Martini" as the start and finish dates, as the time corresponds to the beginning and end of the natural management period. The Martinstag was therefore also called interest day.
We are sorry that you did not like this post so much.
How can we improve that?
