  2. ST. MARTIN’S DAY St. Martin's Day, also known as the Feast of St.Martin is a time for feasting celebrations. The feast day is November 11. St. Martin of Tours startedout as a Roman soldier. He was baptized as an adult and became a monk. The most famous legend of his life is that he once cut his cloak in half to share with a beggar during a snowstorm, to save the beggar from dying of the cold. That night he dreamed that Jesus was wearing the half-cloak Martin had given away. Martin heard Jesus say to the angels: "Here is Martin, the Roman soldier who is not baptised; he has clothed me."


  4. SAINT MARTIN’S DAY IN MALTA St. Martin's Day (Jum San Martin) is celebrated in Malta on the Sunday nearest to November 11. Children are given a bag full of fruits and sweets associated with the feast, known by the Maltese as ‘Il-Borżata' San Martin’, "St Martin's bag". This bag would include walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, chestnuts, dried or processed figs, seasonal fruit (like oranges, tangerines, apples and pomegranates) and "Saint Martin's bread roll" (Ħobżata' San Martin). A feast is celebrated in the village of Baħrija on the outskirts of Rabat (Malta), including a procession led by the statue of Saint Martin. There is also a fair, and a show for local animals. Some groups organise a walk to and from a cave especially associated with Martin in remembrance of the day.
