Lelia's Feast

6-th of May on the St. George Day girls gathered on the green for round dancing. They chose the most beautiful girl amond them and called her Lelia(Lialia, Lada). Then flowered and adorned her with garlands and sand. In the end Lelia crowned each girl with a flower garland and said:

Be as happy as the sun,
Be as marry as the spring,
And as tireless as the bee,
And as rich as mother Earth!

Every girl used to keep Lelia's garland to the next spring...
