Hutsul liturgical days
« on: December 08, 2010, 05:28:21 PM »
When do the feastdays in the snipet below designate? What is Holy Spas, Perszej and Druhoj Bohorodyci? When do they occur?

Panujące przez kilkadziesiąt lat na Huculszczyźnie porządki nie zdołały jednak wszystkiego zmienić. Górale z huculskich wsi, tak jak niegdyś, nie reagują na świeckie powitanie Dobry Den! Ale ożywiają się natychmiast, gdy ktoś pozdrowi ich tradycyjnym - daj Boże zdrowie! Przetrwały wśród nich dawne obyczaje związane z codziennym życiem i żywieniem. Dalej rytm życia huculskich osad wyznacza cerkiewny kalendarz. Owoce z sadów spożywa się po świętym Spasie, kiedy to są święcone, a sezon pasterki zaczyna się w dzień świętego Jura, wypas kończy się w świętej  „Perszej Bohorodyci”, a owiec , kiedy przypada dzień modlitw do „Druhoj Bohorodyci”.

The conditions which have existed in Hutsul-land have not been able to change everything. Peasants from hutsulian villages, just like back in the day, do not react to the secular greeting Dobry Den!(Good Day) but immediately respond when you greet them in the traditional manner - God keep us healthy! The Hutsuls maintain ancient customs associated with everyday life. The life of the Hutsuls is regulated by the Orthodox calendar. Fruits are eaten after Holy Spas, when they are blessed, the grazing season begins on the day of St.Jura, the grazing ends on the holyday of Perszej Bohorodyci, and sheep during the day of prayers to the Druhoj Bohorodyci

Answering your question about the Hutsul language can lead to opening a can of worms. The safe answer is that in many ways common to Ukrainian, but it is a regional dialect related to that spoken by Lemkos and Rusyns. I do want to correct the dates however, the Nativity of the Theotokas is September 8/21 and the Dormition of the Theotokas is August 15/28 for the Hutsuls just as they are for the rest of the Eastern Christian world.  Flowers are blessed at the Dormition.
