Language sometimes has its pitfalls: There are several terms that make you wonder about their so-called political correctness. Among such terms is the greeting "Ski Heil" occasionally used on the slopes!". But is it even allowed to say that, when the word "Heil" may remind one or the other of the dark times in German history? SnowTrex takes a closer look:

The word history of "Heil

The greeting "Heil" goes back to the Latin "Salve", which means "hello". Originally it was intended as a blessing with positive connotations. The word gained a negative meaning gravity by the use in the political context in the National Socialism.

The noon lies a few hours back, there also already the coffee time approaches. One of the most popular snacks, but more for socializing and relaxing than for fighting hunger.

The name Coffee time is just one of many that the people of Europe have found for a snack:

  • Brotzeit (you probably already knew it)
  • snack (yes, not very exciting)
  • Jause (now it’s getting interesting, or?)
  • Znuni (as the Swiss say)
  • Marend (common term in Tyrol)
  • Vesper (no, not the scooter, that’s the Vespa)

So the term "coffee time" is one of the more precise ones. For here at least the dominant beverage is specified; the coffee.
