Għażżiela


The making and faith in the ‘Għażżiela’ (oven baked dough with the initials of the name of Our Lady) is traditionally used as a protection against thunderstorms. Its origins are unknown, but records show that Zebbug’s first parish priest bequeathed in his will back in 1737 a trust fund to permit the residents to buy flour to make għażżiela and protects the place from thunderstorms.
