Spring in Feldioara



In Feldioara commune, Brasov County, are multiple cultural events marking the beginning of spring: The spring Fair ? in March; Whit Sunday Holiday and Armindeni Holiday ? in June. These events are attended by the entire village, tourists in the country and abroad. On this occasion, tourists have the opportunity to attend shows especially organized for promoting the old customs and traditions.

Vegetation God Day

The day dedicated to the Vegetation God, protector of the cattle, horses, seeded lands, vineyards and orchards is called Armindeni in Transylvania. This holiday starts with a big group of carriages loaded with birch. The young boys decorate the pillars of the gates and of the houses of the girls to be married with green branches, and girls offer them brandy and cookies. The householders also put branches at the entry of the cattle shelters and in other outbuildings, for protection of people and of animals against devastating forces of the evil spirits.

Flowers on the hat

They say that, in the old times for Armindeni holiday, locals used to buy fried lamb and drink red wine mixed with sage brush, for blood changing and for protecting the people and the cattle against illnesses. Each of them had to wear lilac flowers and green sage brush: men on their hats, and women in their lap or in their pockets, ?so they are protected against evil and lucky all year round?. Nowadays, for Armindeni holiday, the carriage group is still performed, and armindeni are placed at the doors, and they put out a show and a great party.
