Wolves’ Days

Wolves’ Days These are a set of three, seven or nine days in November when Bulgarians traditionally observe various taboos to protect people and domestic animals from wolf attack. The last day is the most dangerous, as it is observed in honour of a lame wolf, who according to legend, was the first to eat a man. The custom of Wolves’ Days is probably an echo of a Proto-Bulgarian wolf cult. http://www.spellintime.fsnet.co.uk/Folklore_Section_Background.htm
