All the saints
On the feast of the patron saint of a given parish, it was customary to celebrate the Awakening. This period was considered the best time to sow the fields; one of the English proverbs says: “When an elm leaf is like a mouse's ear, sow barley, do not be afraid”. There were many days to sow, for celebrations were celebrated 150 saints!
In All Saints, processions were organized with lanterns made of hollow turnips (or pumpkin), apples were picked and cakes baked (often made of dried fruit), which were offered to the souls of the dead. All journeys on that day were terminated before dark, and the wanderer was provided with a loaf of bread with the sign of the cross heaped with salt (the holy bread and the sign of the cross made of salt were to protect against evil). On this day, people were cared for elderberry wine, known for its healing properties.
