Saint Wenceslas Spanish pangram
« on: September 28, 2020, 02:59:14 PM »
Today we celebrate the festivity of Saint Wenceslas, patron of the Czech lands. In compensation for the day off, I have composed a Spanish pangram in his honor (taking advantage of the fact that the W is a rare letter in Spanish). As we say here that "every Czech is a musician", I assume this is true also for the poor Wenceslas and I have made him an accomplished xylophone player. Oh yeah!

You piked up the wrong saint  :). This one is Saint John of Nepomuk, the saint of the Contrareformation. I am attaching Wenceslas, also from Charles bridge. There is still another representation of him on the bridge: as a child with his granma Saint Ludmila.

I may compose another pangram for Nepomuk in his festivity (I have to find when it is). Unfortunately Nepomuceno (the Spanish version) has no tricky consonants: I will have to pick that W from elsewhere. C'est la vie.

Lovely work Trazo! Also had to laugh at Wenceslas being a gifted xylophonist 😂. Very well done. 👍
