Calendar customs in Baranja
The author of this text uses the data from the Questionnaire of the Centre for Ethnological Cartography. Although some segments of Baranja's traditional culture have already been analyzed and published, this text's intention is to bring together all the customs of eastern Croatia.
The text begins with description of the Christmas customs, i.e. the customs held for the Christmas Eve, the Christmas Day, and New Year's Eve.The processions with masks, held in February, eight weeks before the Eastern, follow. After the Eastern processions, there are the Spring processions (so-called dodole), which are held only if the year had been droughty. On the day of the Holy Spirit, the procession called Kraljice (the Queens) takes place, and the most widespread Eastern custom is the eff-colouring and playing a game called tucanje. All those customs are accompanied by rich music-folklore.
