THE WELCOMING OF SPRING

THE WELCOMING OF SPRING

 

The Welcoming of Spring, a traditional event taking place in Ljubljana before St. Gregory’s Day, revives the handicraftsmen’s tradition of launching wooden clogs with burning candles inside them into waters as a sign of rejoicing at no longer having to work by lights.

According to folk tradition, St. Gregory brings spring. By the Julian calendar, his name day (12 March) is the first day of spring.
