Pamukkale, Turkey, Asia

31 Dec

Photo from Christmas Eve in Pamukkale.

Czech Christmas traditions stem from pagan customs and they engage  prediction of the future. Action happens on the 24th of December, known as “Generous Day”.  When an apple is cut and inside is the pretty star, it means that the next year of happiness is guaranteed. Shapes that result from pouring molten metal into cold water are the estimated future events. People chop up the ice on the frozen water and look into the hole  to see the images of the future.  One of the traditions says that when a young girl fits her shoe behind your head and the tip of the shoe shows away from the girl, it means she will be married within a year. If the tip shows to the girl,  it means she will stay  single and can try again for next Christmas.

    Pagan customs and their predictive ways of future are curious and interesting.

      Maybe they were a lot of time, without internet, TV, aeroplanes… future was uncertain, no social insurance and guaranteed promises from the European Union … people need to create their own future by themselves. And the girls girls wanted to get married, it was nice future.
