Folk traditions – pig slaughter, sausage making
In the traditional folk culture the winter is the time of the pig slaughters. We got to know the folk customs and works in on the history lesson. After these the group members were match with a presentation making of the theme. The bests were who participated on a roasted sausage making race wich was to hold in the Furioso Memorial Park in Derekegyház-Tompahát. The clever girls were enthusiastic perform the works from the meat cutting tot he sausage loading. After the roasting we happy snacking our sausage and -of course- we offered the other racers too. The jury arrived to us for tasting and then we had a lot of recreation programms, for example hors-drawn carriage, handicrafts, chimny cake baking. When the announcement of results was approaching we got excited. The girls revieved an appreciative certificate for their performance. The president of the jury emphasized that introducing and active practising the traditions is really important to confirm the local identity. I am really proud of this three girls – Lotti Berkecz, Lara Krisztina Pintér and Fanni Lili Sebesi – because they were not scared from the new challenges. Really inherent girls! -Sándor Kovács mentor, Group 1 Szentes.
