The first campfire will start to burst out tonight.The first May is traditionally celebrated in almost all parts of the world, and because of the way it is celebrated in our region, it is also known as the “Prvomajski Uranak”. This holiday represents a festivity and a folk tradition that orders that on May 1, at dawn, before the sunrise (some day before the day of May 1st), he goes to nature and most often with the camp fire, celebrates the holiday with dishes from the kettle and grill.In Europe (central and northern), the night before May Day, they call the “Valpurgina Night” (according to St. Valpurgia). As with us, the holiday is celebrated with a song, a drink until the morning, or “uranka”, with the obligatory burning of the campfire.
