Fact of the Day  


More Information  

At the fabled Defenestration of Prague in 1618, the Bohemians threw two Imperial Governors out of the window of a castle. They lived because they fell into a large pile of shit. 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). The kerchiefs of the Croatian fighters were tied surprisingly similar to that of today's modern business neckties.

The English word cravat come straight from the Serbo-Croat Hrvat.
