.: Town of Szczyrk / Customs

Folk customs and ceremonies often come from the times when the basic measure of the passage of time was solar year. Highlanders who lived on farming had to be able to forecast future events, not only those related to weather. Observations of weather and various kinds of fortune-telling served this purpose. An example is fortune-telling related to the Christmas Eve day. Beskid highlanders attributed magic power to the entire period of Christmas. On the basis of weather observations from 13 December until the Christmas Eve, weather was forecast for the next 12 months ahead. In the Christmas Eve evening, girls would do various fortune-telling about future marriage. Beskid Highlanders were God-fearing people. The periods of Lent and Advent were strictly observed by them. Music stopped then, people abstained from eating to the full.
