"St Vitus? Day" Top 5 Page for this destination Former Republic of Serbia and Montenegro Local Custom Tip by atrosanguinea

by atrosanguinea

Bathing or washing on St Vitus? Day or St George?s Day guaranteed health throughout the year. The holiday bathing was performed before sunrise and the ?omaja?, water splashing from the turning mill wheel, was considered particularly precious. Along the banks of the river Pek (Eastern Serbia) and in the spring, children can be found even today sprinkling each other with ?live water? and crossing the river with stilts, the traditional way to cross shallow water.
