Holy Toledo!

Holy Toledo!

Do you know where the expression “Holy Toledo” originated? After a little research, I dug up this clipping from the Toledo Blade. It offers three reasons:

1 – The city of Toledo, Spain, where Christianity got its first hold in that country after a long political and religious struggle, is often called the Holy City of Toledo in literature; 2 – Holy week always has been the worst week at the box office for show business, and old-time actors and performers contended any week in Toledo was Holy Week, so they spread the word as they traveled; 3 – The gangster version.

All three explanations are fantastic in my book.
