So it’s been a year since I abandoned my dear blog. Oh well… this is how it goes! Hopefully I won’t let you down this time :) Here comes a new post! (Not so new as I wrote a short post about it last year… but still!)
So when Lent was finally coming to an end - usually on Good Friday - in some regions of Poland people used to make a funeral of herring and sour rye soup. Pot with żur was usually buried outside of a village. Some prefer to smash a pot with żur on their beloved girl’s door as a part of a courtship (I wouldn't be too impressed…). Wooden and cardboard herring was hanged on a tree.
Sadly, nowadays this tradition is not cultivated.
Don’t forget to read my last year’s post about Polish Palm Sunday!
