Abstracts
Using the example of the small Slovenian town of Brežice, this paper will demonstrate how various “we-groups” were established and imagined with respect to the calendrical holidays in use at that time. It attempts to analyze the role of various symbolic constructions, for example, of the town’s history of public festivities or the processes of differentiation within the local community. The author also focuses on the role of calendrical holidays in the integration of immigrants into local and specific communities. Since public festivities are presented primarily as resources that were competed for and used differently by different groups, the author also explores the possibility of the existence of a shared, and above all equal, sense of ”dirty togetherness” in the first decades of socialism.
