         Huh.

         [laughter] A single lamb now on St. George’s day.

         So in the old days my mother would get up – Huh.

         Huh.

         They’d be off [to get] what you call “silent water”: they go [at night] and bring back

         fresh water from the well. They knead up loaves of bread –

         Uh huh.

         And my mother – in the morning when we get up, back in the old days –

         for every one of us [in the house] they’d pick a nettle stalk, for instance if we’re ten –

         [Like] blackbirds! [laughter] – anyway, however many people. For instance there were four of us

         and [then] two [more, that’s] six. So my mother would cut six stalks of nettles, and arrange them

         on the stove – on the stove where we bake bread, on the large oven.

         Uh huh.

         She’d arrange them on the tiles on top [of the oven], and in the morning she’d go to look.

         On [the morning] of St. George’s day [she’d] look to see which nettle stalk had wilted.

         Uh huh.

         And whichever one had wilted, that meant that –

         [laughter]

         [someone’s] child would be ailing, or that something else would come about.

         So she’d make bread – round breads decorated with – well, a hook, a shepherd’s hook,

         or sheep, on the breads. They make sheep out of little balls of dough and put them there.

         [laughter]

         And that was –

         Hello.

         [laughter]

         [laughter]

         It appears Grandpa’s gotten up! So such things on St. George’s Day, dances –

         But –

         So on St. George’s Day –

         But [how about] when they slaughter the lamb?

         We would slaughter the lamb at home. Not like [those] who call [someone else to do it].

         [We do it] at home. We’d put the lamb in a trough and slaughter it, and from the blood –

         that’s right.

         Take a seat.

         [Ah,] do sit down [here]!

         [No,] wait a minute. He’ll [find a place] to sit.

         No, here! there’s more room here. Indeed [there is].

         Yes.

         [No,] wait. I’ll get up.

         Ah, greetings!

         Here, here! Come and sit over here!

         Greetings. My name is Georgi.

         Hello.

         Hah, and I [am] Georgi too.

         [laughter] Ah, he’s Georgi too!

         All Georgi’s!

         We Georgi’s have gathered together!

         So sit there.

         Are you going to sit? [unintelligible]

         Sit down!

         Over there, sit over there!

         But you could fall [from that seat].]

         Sit over there!

         Easy, easy, [it’ll all work out].

         There you go! Now I’ll get another stool, let me get –

         There’s enough, there’s enough.

         We’re fine. Thank you, yes.

         And from the blood –

         And on St. George’s day, after it’s roasted, we bring in the lamb

         Uh huh.

         Into the house.

         And [some] of the blood into the house –

         They came into the house

         and we make a cross right on the wall, right here.

         Crosses.

         A cross. And if people have small children, they take some of the blood

         and put it on their foreheads, so they’ll be red.

         Aha.

         Like the lambs.

         Yes. The children are decorated in red, from the blood.

         Yes.

         And then we roast [things]. We roast the lamb. But in the old days –

         Now we observe St. George’s day together with the village celebration. You can’t

         do it now [separately]. But in the old days when we’d get together

         it’d be four or five houses [of us]. For instance if it’s these [houses], we’d spread out

         reed mats on some flat place, a flat yard – we spread out cloths

         and arrange [on them] the lambs, fresh cheese – those who have sheep

         make fresh cheese. We put out the round breads, and the little children

         [each] with a nettle stalk, and with water –

         [There’ll be] a time …

         Everyone passes by [the children] ...

         … [when] we’ll forget all that.

         ... and we sprinkle. [The children] sprinkle them, they shower them [with the wet nettles].

         Just like the priest.

         Like the priest. Like the priest, exactly like the priest.

         So we’d sprinkle [people], and we eat, and drink, and shout – merriment!

         We can’t understand how people observe St. George’s day now. You sit down,

         [there’s] hungry guests to feed, then they get right up and leave. But back then, everyone –

         [Say] we’re here where the Dragostin family is, or there where the Dafinkin family is,

         where there’s a large yard, a green meadow [where] we lay out reed mats and sit,

         four or five families. Eating, drinking – merriment! But St. George’s day now?

         And did you take the lamb – when you roast the lamb did you take it

         to church [for a blessing]?

         no

         What?

         What?

         No. We take it earlier on. Earlier on, before –

         [before] you slaughter it.

         Before they slaughter it.

         Before – before we slaughter it …

         When we slaughter it. But now we slaughter it already on Saturday –

         … the priest …

         Back then [though] –

         … the priest sings a blessing on it.

         Back then we carried it to the church

         [while it’s still] alive.

         Alive.

         Alive.

         for the priest to read over it, to sing a blessing over it.

         Ah.

         Each one – when they put it here, when [the butcher] puts an apron

         onto his neck, [ready] to put the lamb there [for the slaughter], then

         [he hoists it] onto his back and we’d take them to church. And then when it comes back,

         [he took it] for the priest to read the blessing – then when we get back we slaughter it

         and then roast it. There’s no need to hurry to –

         Did you put something around the lamb’s neck? Wreaths or something?

         Well –

         Flowers?

         How should I know?

         I don’t remember, only –

         I forgot.

         We light candles.

         Candles, yes.

         If the lamb is a male.

         Yes.

         We light [them].

         They put small candles on its horns. They light little candles.

         and –

         On the horns, right?

         On the horns, they light little candles. And then they slaughter it

         at home. They bring it back from the church and we slaughter it, and then roast it.

         [That was] then. But now we all hurry to the village celebration …

         Well, [there’s] many guests.

         … because guests are coming.

         Many guests.

         Well, in the old days – how can I tell you? It was nice.

         All day long –

         But now?

         Did you leave the priest some of –

         What?

         Did you leave the priest some of the roast?

         Ah, no.
