Polish Grandma Making Awesome Drawings To Preserve Ancient Tradition


In our modern-day times we are prone to forget some of our old traditions. One such tradition is Polish local custom (around Kukawy, north-central Poland), of decorating streets and path ways with Polish folk symbolism made of sand. It was very popular in the old times, and it’s recorded already in 19th century by ethnographers, but it’s even older than that.

This Slavic symbolism from Poland was also common to find inside rural houses during festivity such as Easter. In other words during Easter old people marked the pathways leading from house to house, so people would have beautiful streets while visiting neighbors house during such festivity.
