Strinennia

Strinennia Strinennia - March 9 To invite birds, and therefore the Spring, to come, people bake pastries shaped like birds. Children throw them into the air, saying "The rooks have come." Clay images of larks are made, and their heads are smeared with honey and dressed with tinsel. They are carried around the village while songs of Spring are sung. http://www.winterscapes.com/slavic.htm
