It’s fairly popular – it’s definitely not as big as Christmas or Easter, or even as St. Trifon Zarezan (IMO), but it is a known holiday. I personally mostly associate it with the Proshka (Forgiveness) ritual tomorrow, though I’ve never really practiced or even personally seen (in my region, at least) the part where children try to catch with their mouths an egg or piece of halva tied to a red string. In any case, in the village where I live now we do make a big fire in the village square and then jump over it (when it subsides) for health and protection throughout the year.
Anyway, I think the main difference is that we don’t have any effigies of Morena to burn – the closest thing is probably German, whom we bury or drown to ward off hailstorms.
