St. Petka Paraskeva

St Petka Paraskeva According to popular belief, St. Petka appeares as a snake to those women who violated the taboo and work with wool on the day dedicated to her..... the big “match-making” chain dance on St. Petka’s day which marks the beginning of the period when brides and daughters-in-law are chosen, and which is followed by the season of weddings. http://www.bnr.bg/RadioBulgaria/Emission_English/Theme_Folklore/Material/Petkafolk.htm
