Brotherhood

By Saint Toader, children between 5 and 14 years come together in one of them house.
There they make a Christmas tree with toys. Each child comes with a knot-shaped loaf and a bottle with boiled wheat. They sit around the table and any of them eat one from another, becoming "brother" or "sisters". After dinner, they take one other hand, making a circle arround the tree, singing:

Be sister with me!
Be brother with me!
By when?
By I'll be dead.

Înfrãtitul

De Sf. Toader, copiii între 5 si 14 ani se adunã într-o casã la unul dintre ei. Acolo împodobesc un brad cu jucãrii. Fiecare copil vine cu un colãcel si cu o strachinã de grâu fiert. Se asazã la masã si fiecare mãnâncã unii de la altii, devenind "frati" sau "surori".
Dupã masã, se iau de mâini si formeazã un cerc, în jurul bradului, cântând:

Fii sorã cu mine!
Fii frate cu mine!
Pânã când?
Pânã oi muri.
