The modern Harvest Festival, along with new symbols, includes such traditional agricultural attributes as a sheaf sheathed, a wreath of wool, a wheat loaf adorned with embroidered towels.

It should be noted that all the rituals during the year the Ukrainians created for the sake of the main action, the apogee of the fruitful year - "peeling". "Obzhinok" - the holiday of the completion of harvest. It is rich not only with songs, games, but also with archaic rituals. In the past these days in gratitude for a good harvest, many sacrifices were made to the gods and field spirits.

From the compressed ears of wheat, Ukrainians made ritual sheaves, wreathed wreaths, storing them until the spring. Such a wreath was decorated with flowers and ribbons, and its seeds started seeding in the spring of next year.

Of the best ears in late autumn will be suites iduchi: "Dіduh in hutu - bіda із hati". Didukh is the spirit of the field, the spirit of Dazhbog, the earthly god of life, the patron of the whole family, the patron of the dead, a sheaf made from wheat, rye or other ears, twined with flowers, dried herbs tied with colored ribbons or stems.

The greatest respect to Didukh was shown on Christmas holidays, when the respected Sheaf-Rai, Grandfather Spirit, was the main guest and master of every house.

With the onset of cold weather in the people necessarily remembered "autumn grandfathers", i.e. the souls of the dead ancestors, for them were prepared kalachi, which were distributed to the poor and vagabonds.

On Dmitry, the circle of the calendar year was interrupted until the arrival of spring. It was St. Dmitry who, according to legend, locked Mother Earth with golden keys for the winter, until St. George comes and unlocks it in May.
