March 20 2011 Polish Culture Newsletter


Dear Polish Culture Readers!!!

Spring is coming! One cannot still feel it in the air but the weather forecast says that the sun will welcome us tomorrow morning! I really hope for a lot of sun as I am a little bit tired with the grey days we recently had.

To show how Slavs would welcome Spring, I decided to write the article about old pagan custom - especially that it is still kept in Polish schools. I remember myself making of Marzanna doll and taking a field trip to have the doll drowned.

Have a nice reading! and have a lovely Spring sun wherever you are!

Slavic goddess and Spring
Marzanna is a Slavic goddess that would be indentified with death and Winter. Slavs, missing Spring sun and being desperate for good harvest season, would drown the effigy of the goddess to arrange proper welcome for Spring. This custom is still celebrated in schools and kindergartens in Poland.

I am myself not a perfect blogger or forum-joiner, but the more we are, the better and richer discussions we can have!

any greetings from Poland to all of you!!!
