In the traditional calendar, St. Triphon’s Day is a holiday of the vine-growers, tavern-keepers and gardeners, who are protected by the Healer Saint Trifon. Early in the morning that very day, the housewife in the house kneads and bakes ritual bread, which in some parts of Bulgaria is even decorated with a vine-leaf. After that she boils a chicken, roasts it and then fills a wine vessel with wine. The housewife places all this in a new or clean woolen bag, together with a bottle of sanctified water from the church, which bag she hands to her husband.
