Traditions and customs are associated with the beginning of construction of a house in Transcarpathia


According to traditional custom, the house was started build during the “full moon”, so that it was affluent “it was full of everything”. This custom has its roots in ancient times, when the sun, moon and stars were considered deities. It was distributed among all Slavic peoples.

Not start construction at home on heavy and public holidays (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday). The best days for this were considered to be Tuesday and Thursday.

After all the trees had their branches cut off, and the owner was collecting Toloka to take them away home. In summer, the tree was carried on the front of the cart (front), and in winter on the sleigh (“sleigh”, “ерergelah”). At the same time, they adhered to the custom that part of the tree (”vidzemok”) should be in front of the cart or sled, and the top-behind, otherwise, the owner would be in danger of disaster.

Gazda was the first to leave the forest, and He knew the best road go – so that there are no big holes and sharp turns. The others went out one by one another at a distance of 30-50 m. This arrangement of carts was intended to enable provide emergency assistance – when, for example, a wheel broke off or fell off then the tree fell to the ground.

After the removal of all the wood, they put it near the construction site in “stacks”, moreover, each row was translated by vorinki, so that air passed freely between them for drying. From above such a step of the tree was covered with dranits in the form of a gable roof, and in the mountainous surroundings – sheaves of straw. After finishing this work the owner treated everyone who helped him.
