    Lmao, they were like:

    worker: “Boss, we have no more bricks”

    boss: “okey take that Princess there and built her in”

    worker: “sure boss, she’ll fit just fine”

    this is an ancient belief. it is said that when a new house was built, you are supposed to build in the shadow of a maiden to protect the home, sooo… this is a proof that Bulgarians actually have been doing this. i always knew that story, but didn’t imagine it to be true….

    There are folk songs that mention this. Usually the foreman has to build in his young wife as a sacrifice to fulfil his duty.

    Aye, it’s a popular story. I talked about it with a Serbian friend some months ago and discovered there was a somewhat similar belief even as far as Japan. Still, building a shadow into the foundation is somewhat more popular here (although it still results in the death of the “built-in” woman, at least according to the stories).
