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).
