Easter is the main holiday with an eternal sacred meaning, the victory over death, the rebirth of life, love, faith and hope, the rebirth of all living things in nature and in the world.

All spring before Easter, people sang spring songs, glorifying the revival of nature. Most vesnjanok and gaivok resembled a dramatized game and were dedicated to warmth, harvest, love, matchmaking, offspring. Let's try and we'll learn one of these vespers!

One of the most important ceremonies was meeting birds, arriving from distant lands, from the world where the souls of all the dead lived. Therefore, birds, especially larks, cranes, swallows, so honored and honored in our land.
