Fact of the Day

This incident help spark the Thirty Years War, which help spread the necktie fashion. Croatian soldiers wore a kerchief-like decoration around their necks in battle. When some soldiers were stationed in France, the fad started to catch on under the title a la Croatia (a la Croate).
