The end of summer

In all our legends and stories we can see that Romanians were very tight to their land, the agricultural moments used to mark the calendar and these days were felt as holidays or feasts.
Today, even if many peasants forgot what they used to work and how they used to do it the hard way thanks to the upcoming technologies and to the ways everything is being mechanized and industrialized, you can still feel a special itch in your heart when you get close to the old traditions.
