Hi :-)

I spent a lot of time in Poland lately, without Internet-connection.

How often do you travel somewhere? Do you have favourite places?

Have a nice day :-)

35 days, countdown has begun :-)

Busójárás: unfortunately I never have been there to whatch it.

There are two different stories about roots:

- correct: the usual "chase away the winter" and "protect your folks from bad spirits" type of fest, like Venice carnival

- wrong but funny: when Ottomans occupied the area, then the people hid themselves in the marsh near to Mohács, and they wanted to chase away the Ottomans, so they surprised them in the middle of the night in these masquerades.

So you like vanilla and iris :-) Fragrance of winter is beautiful indeed!

The name of the tradition is busójárás - busó is the name of the monster that chases away the winter, járás is "going".

That is a beautiful habit, to begin the year at "Noruz", with the spring. We also have got traditions, where people chase away the winter with scary masquerade, but that is rather a game instead of having a deeper meaning.

Here is rather cold, but without snow. I like winter :-)

Dear Challanger, how are you? I hope that you will have a beautiful and fragrant year! Actually... I am quite curious, when do you begin the new year in Iran?
TarTar 8 years ago
Dear Challenger, thank you very much :-) I wish you all the best, and merry Christmas!!!
TarTar 8 years ago
It is definitely the truth, Challenger, but a few years ago I hated violet, and now we are the best friends, I hope that my attitude toward iris will also change.

Thanks again mate! As you may have already understood, I have a total crash about vintage, discontinued, rare, unique fragrances.
