The pupils of Narva Paju school researched on sources of customes, holiday decorations etc. as well as school celebrations.



Secular Celebrations

Birthdays in our families are always celebrated, and christenings and confirmations are celebrated with large parties. The most important holiday remains New Year. All families always decorate fir-tree and traditional foods are served. Young generation call a fir-tree as Christmas tree. Now New Year's Eve is considered part of the Christmas holidays. A sauna before midnight cleans the body and spirit for the upcoming year.

The old folk calender included many days that influenced farming decisions. On Shrove Tuesday, people still go sledding to make flax plants grow taller. On Saint John's Eve (23 June), we go to the countryside to celebrate midsummer with large bonfires. 

State holidays with official governmental celebrations include Independence Day (24 February), Victory Day (23 June), and Independence Restoration Day (20 August).

Food and Economy


Food in Daily Life.

In the fall and winter, soups and stews predominate, with potatoes a staple at most meals. In the spring and summer, fresh tomatoes and cucumbers accompany every meal. Sandwiches are common breakfast fare, and coffee is drunk frequently throughout the day and at social events. In coastal areas, fish is eaten. Many people grow fruits, vegetables, and berries during the summer and can what remains in the fall. Family dinners are infrequent, as both parents usually work. Most families try to share one meal together on the weekend.

Food Customs at Ceremonial Occasions.

Christmas dinner includes roast pork or goose, blood sausage, sauerkraut, potatoes, and head cheese, with gingerbread cookies for dessert. Other special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, and funerals do not require special foods, though it is expected that food will be plentiful. 


The pupils of our school made giant cherry to perform their everyday food. It is teamwork.
