Easter tradition(notice)

Welcome to my world. Enjoy!
My resolution for 2013 is to show pictures of my home place and from Romania! I love my country, so, I really want sharing photos about it!
Hope you'll enjoy them and find out interesting new places!

It is a tradition from our ancestors, in my home town, Cugir, Romania, to gather to the Orthodox Church,on Easter, all the citizen who are 60 years old. They, men and women, had to prepare the Easter wine and bread for the community. It is also an opportunity to be together for a religious event and to wear old clothes, made of soft white blouse, sewed
by hand, black vests, and front and back sides of something like aprons, made of  black wool. 
Men have got thin white long shirts, tied on a leather belt. That belt is big enough to put inside money, like a wallet, and other useful things. On their feet, men and women wear "opinci", a pair of rubber shoes and wool , long socks. "Pastenii" , because this is their name, enjoy seeing each other and celebrate  Easter.
Every year it is the same tradition, but different people from the community!
