New Year's saying
- Hi all,
I asked this question once before a long time ago of a different Slovak internet research group. Never got an answer
I remember by Grandfather Molchany would visit our house on New Year's Day. Before he entered he recited a poem
or prayer or 'wish'. I once asked him about it and all I can remember is that there was a cake and a mouse involved.
My dad claims not to remember what I'm talking about. This all took place about 35 years ago.
I kind of recall the poem having something to do with the New Year and wishing the household properous times and no
bad fortune. I think the cake signifies the prosperity and the mouse (not eating the cake) signifies the bad.
Any ideas out there?
