Early in the spring boys go to the forest where they cut down a tree, mostly a young birch.
They decorate the tree with long and colourful ribbons and build it up in front of the girl’s house. This was done every night before the first day of May.
If the tree stood crooked than it was a shame for a girl’s family as well for a guy who build it.
On 1 If the guy likes a girl, he also asked for her bloomed cherry brunch and wore it on his hat.
It’s only the manifestation of your love that is based on your culture and background.The boundaries and etiquette are long gone and it’s up to you how you say “I love you” – “ľúbim ťa.” Our grandparents and their grandparents lived in a different world.They lived according to the unspoken social rules based mostly on Catholicism. Feeling described by the word love hits everyone the same. When you are in love it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from.However, our customs and traditions to express our feeling are bit different and unique. Rules between girls and guys, guys and guys or girls and girls got mixed up.
