There are many stories about the lucky gnocchi tradition. The most famous is the story of San Pantaleon, a missionary, arriving in a small village in Italy on the 29th of an unknown month. He knocked at the door of a very poor house. An elderly couple let him in and offered him the only food they had: Gnocchi! After their guest left their home, the couple found gold coins under their gnocchi plates.
San Pantaleon assembled all the villagers and directed them to gather each 29th day of the month in order to have luck and prosperity in their lives. Everybody is lucky and you as well can enjoy homemade gnocchi on the 29th day of each month.
