Mardi Gras, Pentecost, Easter goes, Who does not have winter fur, will be cold. I do not have, I just shiver, give me bacon,that I can eat. Carnival, carnivals, carnival times While ones drink, others at the table are eating sausages. Here they don't give, here they gave, this horse was killed, there are ribs. And we poor students, we have nothing to eat. We have to walk from house to house trough the village.
Mostly animal masks (goat, bear, deer) are worn during Fasiangy entertainment. In old times boys in the scary masks went from doors to doors singing Fasiangy, Turice... song asking for a piece of bacon (freshly made)
The favorite time for pig slaughter and its meat processing is Fasiangy
Tuesday before Ash Wednesday are musical instruments "buried" to symbolize fasting times
March trough the village, with music and masks during Fasiangy feast
