Babin Den at St. Dimitar Church

20.Jan.2008 We celebrated Babin Den (the Midwife's Day) for the second time in Toronto, at the St. Dimitar Church. Mrs. Kina Valcheva was the sweetest 'baba' one can imagine. We washed her hands, and she sprinkled us with water for health, fed each one of us with bread and honey for sweet life, and wished the future mothers to have lots of children. Two pregnant ladies kicked the little pale to try and see what children they would have. After the custom had been fully recreated, we upheld the tradition with a good meal and dances.
