Go into the weekend with the poem on this hand-painted, ceramic plate from the LACS collection! The Luxembourgish poem approximately translates to:
We are holding tight to our land,
With all our strength and thanks, "I am a Luxembourger child!" That word still has a good sound."
COVID-19 has uprooted nearly every aspect of our lives. But Minnesotans take care of one another. And right now the best way to demonstrate those Minnesota values is by wearing a mask to protect our neighbors, keep businesses open, and get us back to the activities we love.
That’s why, beginning on Saturday, July 25, all Minnesotans will be required to take this simple and effective step to slow the spread of COVID-19. Questions? Visit mn.gov/COVID19.

Luxembourg is a country of polyglots, but rumour has it anglophones generally don't prioritise Luxembourgish, so... how good is yours?
