What did our Rusyn ancestors do during the very long, very cold

winter months in the Carpathian Mountains?

  • How did they stay warm?
  • What did they wear?
  • What did they eat?
  • How were the foods prepared?
  • What activities kept them busy?
  • What social activities took place?

We will cover the period of time between the Feast of the Nativity

and the Feast of the Resurrection and learn how pagan customs

became Christian Traditions among the Carpatho-Rusyns.

Reservations are needed due to limited space.

Afterwards we will join for dinner at a nearby restaurant.
