Water in Lithuanian Folk Ceremonies and Traditions

Autorius:
  1. Why is water so significant in our traditions and festivals? (Kodėl vanduo  toks svarbus švenčių apeigose ir papročiuose?)

 

  • The world of water was as if a different world.
  • Water was vitally bounded with people.
  • Water was meant to be a blessed power and an important tool of lustration.
  • Ritual bathing meant returning to initial ‘clean’ state as well as the renewal of health.
  • Vandens pasaulis buvo tarsi kitas pasaulis.
  • Bet jis buvo gyvybiškai ir sakraliai susijęs su žmonėmis.
  • Vanduo ir įprasminamas kaip šventa galia ir svarbi apsivalymo priemonė.
  • Apeiginis prausimasis ar maudymasis reiškia grįžimą į pradinį „švarų” būvį, tai yra  ir sveikatos grąžinimo būdas.

 

  1. Shrove Tuesday symbolizes the end of winter (Užgavėnės – žiemos išvarymo šventė)

 

  • It is inadvisable to drink water on Shrove Tuesday because this will cause severe thirst all year long.
  • Gerti vandens nepatariama, nes visus metus troškulys kamuos.

 

  1. During the festival water was splashed on all comers: revellers wearing masks, neighbours going for a ride and guests crowding in the yard to ensure a sufficient amount of rain for plants and crop the following summer. (Per Užgavėnes važinėjantis buvo laistomasi vandeniu. Taip  buvo siekiama sukelti oro atšilimą, paverčiant sniegą vandeniu, kad pasėliams ir augmenijai pakaktų lietaus.)
