Why they say so...

Folk wisdom is the experience accumulated by peoples over a long period of human development.

And for every nation, this wisdom reflects the peculiarities of speech, language, behavior, traditions and human relations.

Therefore, within the framework of the project "Once upon a time there was Luxembourg", we introduced the rubric

"Why they say so..."

This time we took 2 Luxembourgish phrases

• Wou den Apel Läit ass en Äppelbam net wäit

• D'Aarbecht huet eng batter Wuerzel an eng séiss Fruucht

And together they began to search and discuss their meaning, translate into Russian, look for similar expressions in other languages.
