Romanian Traditions at the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant

Each nation differs and is mainly defined by its traditions. In Romania, popular traditions and customs have been passed down from generation to generation, making this country a fairytale place for both locals and foreigners who take part in them.

According to the Christian tradition, on November 8 is the feast of the Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel. Irina Nicolau, folklorist and former director of the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant, said:

“On Saturday, before Hranghel, every man must light a candle that will be his “eternal light” in the world beyond. The Godsons go with the coils to the godparents. Mix the rams with the sheep. For this purpose, the cake of the rams is made and thrown between the sheep. If she falls face up, the sheep will do well. It is completely celebrated”.
