A to Z Challenge

Welcome to the A to Z Challenge! Today’s letter is J…

Legendary Creatures

spriteJievaras is one of the little people or household spirit from Lithuania. This amiable chap helps farmers protect their grain. Normally people would make small sacrifices to Jievaras (usually made after the rye harvest). While cutting grain, women would leave a few grain tufts uncut, which would later be braided into plaits. They would also leave some bread and salt under the plait, and would say: Davei manei, Zemele, duodame ir tau

“You gave for us, Mother Earth, we are giving for you too”
(A request for the land to continue to be fruitful).
