665 Steinbach Nutcracker The wooden Shoemaker
Suddenly they have become fashionable
again, the wooden shoes or clogs, as the new shoes with the thick
healthy wooden soles are now called. No one seems to remember any more
that God Almighty — oh! so long ago — caught a wooden shoemaker
working on a Sunday. Don’t you know that the Sabbath is holy, asked
God. What do I care, said the obstinate shoemaker, if it’s Sunday or
Monday. God then punished the man by sending him to the moon for
eternity, and since then ~the man in the moon with his bundle of wooden
shoes” can be seen when the night is clear.
On the 21st July 1969 the Americans
Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin visited the moon. They didn’t bring
the man in the moon back with them, but since then the wooden shoes have
been suspiciously popular!
