Summary
Today we celebrate a buttery crescent roll of french descent that can be served sweet or savory.

 A day to celebrate this delicate, crescent-shaped puff pastry (Croissant means "crescent" in French).

Although associated with France, the flaky pastry originated in the Austrian kipfel and was introduced to France in the mid-19th century.

The first recorded origin story about the croissant comes from the Battle of Vienna, either in 1683 or during the earlier siege in 1529, to celebrate the defeat of the Ottoman attack on the city, with the shape referring to the crescents on the Ottoman flags.
