Re: July's Traditions!

Hello my dear friends,


It's JULY and lit's see what are the old news this month in our traditions :-)


July 8th: St. Pricopie; The celebration of the wolf

St. Pricopie plays a very important role for the crops, which he protects against the meteorological disasters. If the people don`t respect his celebration, St. Pricopie will send lightnings, thunders, hail or heat. Taking a wolf shape, he can also kidnap the children of those who worked during this celebration.

The peasants from the Apuseni Mountains

(called “moti”)




believe that the ones who don`t respect St. Pricopie's day will be taken away by two very powerful winds, called Harcodan and Dornados.

Hope you all enjoy your journey with me in our traditions of July!

Wish you a wonderful Summer.

With friendship,
