It’s good too see people celebrate Jarillo in other Slavic countries.
Jarillo celebration was fused with Christian celebration of St George known as Jur’ja in Belarus. Jur’ja was one of the most celebrated festives in people’s calendar. It is a separate subject of its own that deserves to have a research and book written about it. The festive in Belarus is different to that of Russia and Ukraine, where it was not celebrated to the same extent.May 9, 2015 at 5:24 am #429909
The celebration of Jur’ja (Jarilo) by people of Belarusian Polesia, which is a little different to celebrations of other regions of Belarus. There are many customs and superstitions associated with this festive, such as taking cows through morning dew, having a lunch in rye fields and many others. These customs and superstitions were related to praising God and supreme deities asking for better crops and healthier animals.May 9, 2015 at 2:42 pm #429911
@Sviatogor you attend those ceremonies or? you should make a report on it how it looks in BelarusMay 9, 2015 at 3:43 pm #429914
I did not attend one. I am a city resident. My knowledge comes from ethnography books and reports such as the one I posted above. Polesia is an interesting ethnographic region. It was like a separate world for centuries.
