|On the first day of the New Year children from our region are involved
in a special ritual.
That is the most spread ritual used for future prediction. Children, junior girls and boys, make a "bridge" of a small branch in a pitchfork shape. A stick is placed across between the two rides of the branch. It symbolizes a connection between the old and New Year. Each child should have her/his run bridge. She/ He may dream on the first New Year night her/his destiny.
În prima zi a Anului Nou, copiii din zona noastrã participã
la un ritual de citire a viitorului, numit "Obiceiul puntilor". Este probabil
cel mai rãspândit ritual din primele zile ale anului.
