All Hi! Want to imagine your attention fun “" Slavyanskaya culture and tradition ".

No sooner holidays Slavs


Winter novolete Slavs began in Day winter frequently a, when Count Sascha Kolowrat, a raid full turnover, he launched a new the Contemporary solar days. The first god, which and was esteemed in winter holidays, was god Kolyada.

Slavs ``secular his infant, incurring renewal, light young sun, when the prothetic god wisdom - Velez as would is handing Kolyade knowledge - “what? After all, ”, as their was called Slavs. From words “what? After all, ” occur words“ priest ” and “voyne. ”

Koleda this god was is named not accidentally, in fundamentally behalf of young God there is coincidence with at the root name chief Slavic symbol of a - Kolo – wheels time of Svarog.

Is considered, that all gods Academy help we shall Creator spin wheel time. Under this all the bright gods simultaneously embody might sun-Myesyats.

Here is with whatever the main gods were stems sunny cult have Slavs:

- Kolyada and Velez – meeting young, narozhdayuschegosya sun,

- Curiosity and Lada – the birth of, Spring, the younger the Sun,

- denoted and Perun with Dazhbogom – the entire force and might sun-Khors,

- Ovsen (Tausen) and Svarog – time crop, and then 0.08mm2 to sun.

About one those Blackmar, about manuscript of Avetisyan Kolyada, interestingly written in book “Svyatoslav. ”


- 03 Gods and people Russias – 1. The Russian belief – book “Svyatoslav ”

“Many respiration something worries, were whether have but temples.

Can confidently state that were. Their mentions Jacob Roman Catholic monks in “well and memory grand duke Russian Vladimir ”, arguing, that he“ temples idolskie raskopa and poseche. ” The Yasukuni in North Russias mentions “The Saga about Yomskikh vityazyakh. ”

Moreover, on Russias found the remnants of such a facilities, perhaps, moreover the most, upominayuschegosya in saga, fully such little a small Slavic temple, raskopannym in the operations, in Grossen-Preussisch Strohen.

In is temple even found six lugs copies of and leftovers from the horse – evidence the most rites, that Varyags committed the in battle-, Radigosche and Schetsini, and their colonists in a mouth of Dvina River had transferred livam.

In our nothing such a not found, but found “Perunov tufted puffins ” on hryvnya and wooden kumirchik any vast unseen, but very pretty the idol – the Baby.

The Yasukuni found in Ladoga, on … of Varyags the street! Have read I about this in book illustrious “neonormannista ” Gleb Lebedev, with he himself same and notes, that the Yasukuni has-West Slavic, not a Scandinavian kind of!


Until our days has peaked several myths about the god Kolyade.

Want lead cursory calendar 2014 Winter the holidays Slavs, with small datasheets basic practicing an.

stumpy — 24 stuzhenya / December

The most a short day in year, when Koschnyy God “okorachivaet ” outgoing year.

In this day Forces Darkness strive to not pitch in our world light gods, not allow the birth of Kolyada. But Slavs await and encounter young God, and their observance defend his, and helps them in this the Irish God Volos. So is born light young sun and Kolyada.

On popular belief those, night before Koleda good for the diverse telling places, volshby, travel souls in Jav, Prav and Nav and camping on P. Deal in that, in this day the world Nav'i quite close is coming to people, and mystery,’darkness, can become known. However not should underestimate entire the danger meeting with the world Darkness – and better recruiting support God Volos.

Kolyada — 25 stuzhenya / December

One of basic svyatodney Kologoda, commemorative to Standard Solntsevorotu, day Alekseei a new sun. In this day’re producing rite of passage Updating — Renaissance of Fire, and entire night are burning on tops hills sacred famous, helping a new Sun.

Christmas Kolyada – this symbol of narozhdeniya a new sun in Wheel savant life, and Child Kolyada – symbol of forever obnovlyayuschegosya world, committed to the the Light.

“Book Kolyada. ” Cliffsnotes myth about Kolyade:

“Know about birth Kolyada Chernabog (Disney). Very he committed to it, for were him forecast big trouble from son Dadjbog. And made he so, to but lost is a magical ring and forfeited forces.

Chernabog (Disney) cooled heart of Dadjbog, has grinded his in ice of, and his wife Maya has moved in Jav, Prav and Nav, as and was it Arabian. And returned she from kingdom death, only to produce God Kalyada. Because) sent she Kalyada in basket on seas currant in Irij to god Khorsu and comments related-Zarenitse.

Rose Khors sooner-raneshenko and went exhorts small river Berry, lest washed in the clean water. And found have Bank Khors basket, siyavshuyu heavenly light. Not was in the basket nor gold, nor silver content, and was in it Golden-haired child.

And here is joy on the sky and on earth. In Irii god Kolyada. In Irii his again found magician-kolezhane. Came they packaged by guiding signed exhorts the Gate Iriya. Gates in Irij kolezhanam opened Heavenly the Deer. And comprised they, glorify Kalyada, Khors, FC Zorya-MALS Luhansk, Maja and Dadjbog.

And saw kolezhane, that Child Kolyada on the hands of have Zari-Zarenitsy. And near on silver bench - Khors. Have Khors golden beard and moustache. Have Zari-Zarenitsy curls blond one, crumbling “low on its crosses.

Khors and Kayisa... sit you kolezhan for the table. On is well ubrannom table kolezhane saw three goblet - the first with honey of Lord Surya, the second - with beer Khomoy, and a third with Abritoy. Surju saws from goblet Khors, khomu - Kayisa-Zarenitsa, and Abritu - Kolyada.

And in this time in the Dark One, too Heaven lyutoval Chernabog (Disney) a warlock. He brought together all demons-dasuney, to figure - as them ruin young God Kalyada.

And then said a warlock demonitse Putane:

- Turn around, Putana, a maiden, fly fly fly in Irij and deliver young Kalyada! Let his bones will become ashes, let eliminates their black wind!

Demoness Putana leaked wine in middle the scales, and in wine dissolved poison. Had landed she with charkoy in Irij and told:

- I has brought guilt young son Dadjbog! Let he out wine from chalice.

Responding it kolezhane:

- Kolyada still molodenek! To drink wine him quite. Better let-@-@ pay you, Putana, thumping young god!

Obmaknula Putana thumping in wine, has taken on hands Kalyada, and pointed her him thumping its with poison. Bell rung Kolyada to breast Putany, sucked out all milk, and instead poison life Putany.

Turned into here Putana an old lady and has fallen, raskinuv its feet and having opened one fanger fall. And here all punished, look at ghastly body demonitsy. Here Kayisa-Zarenitsa then Kalyada, and Khors flung Putanu on land. And sodrognulos the Empire Kascheevo from anger Chernoboga. ”


“Koli in this day Snow deeply held — grass and bread will are high ”,“ If in this day warmly — Spring will the Cold ”, “If metelnaya night — the bees well swarming will ”,“ In night stars densely — densely and berries will. ”

new YEAR FOR – SchEDRETs (generous evening) – in night on 1 sechenya / January

A new year – Charitable evening - The only Slavyanskii celebration, which marks at the state level in Slavic states and on this the Nighttime!

When god freezing cold glamoured churchgoers on settlements, casting strong reduced the, Denizenry, wanting to insulate themselves from sense again, place on window gifts: Pancakes, kissel (kissel is, biscuits, Kutya.

Now glamoured transformed in bountiful man - and Bergen Frost, who himself evaluates his hand gifts. Is considered, that thus became precisely glamoured, with quite recently, in mid-nineteenth century.

However image bountiful and Bergen Frost, likely, stems with drevneslavyanskim god Velesom, which always was considered god-saint, usual source and assistant. To Wallace treated – help the cattle to protect from and silver, bring in house affluence and warn from dangers.

Witness – as dressed of the transit Moroz – have him the Long fur coat, but accurately so same in a fur coat is drawn and Velez. And fur coat have Volos – from his ability to to oborotnichestvu - to turn into bear. And magic properties and Bergen Frost so same go from Volos. Ultimately Velez and transformed in bountiful and Bergen Frost, and in a Santa Klaus, razezzhayuschego on the sky in teamed from 9 deer. Incidentally, precisely in ancient Slavic calendar was 9 days in week.

In further dive bonbon Christmas tree there is deep a rite sense: In must plants, on popular belief those, live perfume ancestors. So, by decorating spruce the, we would bring gifts their ancestors.

However custom ornamentar trees present in Slavs virtually on all festivities, and the main tree for jewelry initially was birch – tree “bera (disambiguation) ”, camping on E. Bear. But, again same, the bear – totem the deity Volos. So that all winter New Year customs again cite us to's ancient Slavic beliefs. Birch same so and has remained the main symbolic tree another Slavic holiday – Kupala Day.

And what the main tree of Christmas became precisely coniferous tree, so the reason in is, that not everywhere are rising birch. To the same, for example, on Oka the New Year's tree is considered a small pine, not spruce. And precisely pine is considered sacred tree in other Vedic countries – China and Japan.

A new year, as and Schedrets, family celebration. In this day better visit their home. During celebration New Deal year demonstrate mantra on the whole future year. Not hence whether custom – be given toasts and wishes? Us in Charitable evening speculating went about the future fiance in such a way. Not about this whether dreaming in New year girls, wanting to, to them the apparently pie with little ring?

Schedrets was central day in Velesovykh days. For 6 days before him noted Kalyada, and through 6 days after – Vodokres. In string 2014 Winter svyatochnykh days and this celebration not managed without telling places.

For the January spells and telling places, associated with “podblyudnymi songs ”, needed their special vessels for svyatochnoy water, in that muck By accessories a ring. Idea water podcherkivalas and massive relief zigzagoobraznoy line ,-reaching around just obryadovogo vessel, under the most whisk.

Agrarian-magic character svyatochnykh telling places enough mutually clarified – works W. I. Tchitchirova; one of the major “podblyudnykh songs ” (songs“ under it ”, to festive table) was “thank brings forth bread. ”

Water and trade with solyarnoy symbolics (rings, kolty, bracelets, amulets) - mandatory trappings New Year agrarian-specific talismanic telling places, so same as Water and the Sun, provided a an ancient slavyaninu crops.


Twelve may do you – saints evenings, ranging with Day-Before-Kolyada and until Vodokresa, devoted of Memory of the Ancestors. This Charodeynoe time, when light a new sun even is too weak, to disperse the candy (as this was in Times, when Svarog even only have tempered Earth surpassing even the oak tree), and moment, connecting Jav, Prav and Nav and Jav, Prav and Nav, widely vehicle are hanging open.

Week - it is time ceremonies of of the Ancestors, Koledari (orthodox carolers), domestic ceremonial demon-chinstv, diverse telling places, youth gabfests.

Velesovy days in Bulgaria.

In Bulgarian New Year rites participated 12 “), dressed in are purely animal and skotskie masks and favored on belt making goo-goo dangly bells-botalami. ” These Men Gathering Together – “survakary ” - converged in night under a new year from different villages in rural-urban divide and started its lasting and mnogoobraznoe Footbal, consisting of zaklinatelnykh practicing an and battles two parties or foreign currency. Among masks or foreign currency most often were masks bear and a bull-round, hence and another name may do you - Turitsy.

2 January Bulgarians implemented a special “of the Ox celebration ”, when earlier“ survakary ” and “kolyadniki ” doll was stalls and khlevy. The latest day may do you have real was 7 January, when the bellwether kolyadnikov staff treated its and estimated, yavlyavshuyusya in masks. Obligatory was mask bear.

Week shared on two than half:

- the first (including Christmas night - Schedrets) was connected with Koleda and devoted future crop and fortune-telling girls about's marriage,, and

- the second (starting with New night) was connected with struggle Volos with demons (demons, hence and the word “modest ”) Koschnogo God. Velez was considered saint cattle and beasts at our door. This part of may do you differed special “walkabout thing evil spirits ”, with it need was fight under the protection of Volos.

Velez could to dissent as in the form of bear - “forest czar ”, so and in the form of a bull-round, representative of Boquete wealth.

Bulgarian survakary in bearskins, and fun hoof prints masks, with skotimi chimes have belt and with vividly-red the rods of the in the hands of highly its very dredge up ethos ancient priests Volos.

Turitsy have eastern Slavs.

In svyatochnoy Slavic obryadnosti name of Volos already not mentioned, but under a new year and on, uh, Mardi Gras in songs from all sides contained Tur; on naeai shoulders, a bull, in masquerades participated tootsy masks, collectively referred to as “tours. ”

Have an ancient Volos over time proved two hoof prints but we:

- more’s somewhat archaic, hunting — the bear (preserved in the North) and

- several more Boeings, associated with pastoralists, — tour, vstrechaemaya in southern Slavic areas from Ukraine until Dalmatia.

On Russias Christianity imposed strict ban on name of most popular Slavic God, but thus has promoted the emergence of such a neoplasms, as Tur and Turitsy.

The link Volos with winter svyatkami explains not only man (dummy) biscuits in the form of household animals, but and ryazhene, get into your fatigues hoof prints masks and dance in vyvorochennykh tulupakh.

Old the authors have left colorful describe svyatochnykh building:

“when people on ies same their zakonoprotivnykh soborischakh and some Bourdaisiere-a Satan. Vospominayut and inyi faces its grains and entire the beauty human in possession of some kharyami or real Scarers, on diyavolskiy image Palazzina della Meridiana, added, shut out.. ”

In another pouchenii in more a common form states: “. We naia to from people in beasts to going. ”

In Turitsy the head of the family, in vyvorochennoy fur upward a fur coat, ugoschayuschiy cattle and zaklinayuschiy his that under aid an axe, looks so, as should was, obviously, look to an ancient a Wise Man, priest “volokhatogo God, a daily. ”

Precisely on these winter holidays everywhere baked any man (dummy) biscuits, featuring cattle: “little cows ”,“ kozulki ”, “trucking ”,“ horns. ” Under this predominate name, associated with Astana Economic Forum.

Ancient “skotiy god ” Velez held prominent placement in popular ARCOBRONZE obryadnosti. Mummers' plays in are purely animal masks and in vyvorochennye tulupy done twice in year: On winter yuletide and on, uh, Mardi Gras, with both term were are linked with sunny using the EIWDTM transducer — winter solstice and spring. Am I forgiven?.

So pre-Christian discover Maslenitsa on time line up with arkhaichnymi komoeditsami — holiday Awakening bear-coma, when the Belarusians dance ritual dancing in coats fur resurfaced.

An unmistakable conjugation Volos with China bear, mini near researchers, allows link with this “skotim god ” and maslenichnoe ryazhene. Is obtained so, that himself custom ritual pereryazhivaniya, and on yuletide, and on, uh, Mardi Gras, it turns out firmly associated with Velesom in his primary but we animal God, cholelithiasis complicated with later elements “skotego God. ”

However, in have come down until us myths states about the other but we Volos – wise God, has learned Slavs farming, writing, and Moscow them Count Sascha Kolowrat-Calendar.

VODOKRES — 6 sechenya / January

However early Russian the word “Creys ” (hence and svasticheskiy equilateral“ Cross ”) meant “Fire ”, not necessarily Christian used of the crucifixion of, as now consider many. And “the Baptism ” initially called“ by all the with. ”

With water same were are linked other cleaning customs, which were called otherwise – “vodokresami. ” And if “baptism ” was prerogatives warriors, men, then“ vodokres ” was available all Slavs, ranging with the most fact birth. The birth of purely Slavic anthropological type backdrop in sanctified by magic domestic Karmapas the font.

In the new (Christian) the calendar, number of 6 and 12 devoted Wallace.
