The month of November in the Romanian tradition

The folk tradition refers to the month of November as “Brumar” or “Promorar”. In the Romanian language, the words “bruma” and “promoroaca” mean “hoarfrost”. It is the month when the hoarfrost can often be seen. In some folk poems, an interesting character can be found – he kisses the flowers, thus making them wither. November is also called the month of wines (“Vinar” or “Vincer”).

The preparations for the winter season which have been begun in October become more and more intense in November, the month which ends the autumn.

The folk celebrations of this month are:

  • November 1st: Saints Cosma and Damian (Vracevul)
  • November 8th: Saints Archangels Michael and Gabriel
  • November 11th: St. Mina (The feast of the thieves)
  • November 12th: The Autumn "Martini"
  • November 13th: St. John the Merciful
  • November 14th: The Winter "Filipi"
  • November 21st: The entering into the church (Ovidenia)
  • November 25th: St. Ecaterina
  • November 29th: St. Andrew`s Eve
  • November 30th: St. Andrew
