The story of Liebstattsonntag:

In 1641, the Passau bishop, who was then responsible for Gmunden, established his own custom for the spa town on Lake Traunsee. He instructed the parish priest to invite the poor people of the city to a common meal on the fourth Sunday of Lent and to apply it themselves. Historically, it was the affirmation of the so-called Corpus Christi Brotherhood. Members of this brotherhood were wealthy and influential citizens, who paid their love to the poor in this way. Of this, the Mittfastensundntag got its beautiful name. This custom has been preserved in a modified form until today. He remained a festive Sunday in the midst of Lent, which is begun with a solemn church with the Trachtenvereinen and then culminates at the Town Hall Square in a cheerful gift of spruchgezierten Lebzeltherzen.
