IJsheiligen
Look at the picture and tell us which word is misspeld?

IJsheiligen (Ice Saints in English) is the name for a number of Catholic Saints (heiligen) whose name days fall from May 11-15. This is especially true for the regions that are subject to the four seasons (seizoenen) like the Netherlands! According to popular statistics these are the last days in the spring (voorjaar) when night frost (nachtvorst) can still occur. That’s good to know for everyone who works in the garden!
