Mother' s Dear Babies - Day of Grandmother


Versiune în Limba Română AICI.
In some villages, women celebrated Day of Grandmother/Midwife (Ziua babei). The essential element of this celebration is the scenario of ritual gestures that women bring an offering of gratitude to the old woman who helped give birth to children.
At birth of a child, mothers gave to midwife a gift: a dress, soap, a towel. In the Day of Midwife she received round bread, a pie, a chicken, wine, and she cooked three or four dishes.
