Andrzejki / St. Andrew's Day

by Marzena Jozefczyk November. 26, 2011 5191 views

In Poland evening on November 30th is considered to be full of magic, prophecies and divinations. We celebrated on weekend before with paraffin, candles, shadows and good whiskey.
One has to pour hot paraffin on cold water. The shape that comes out of it tells the future :)

Wax melting…

Old candles in a pot

We pour liquid wax on cold water. It has to go through a key.

Here's mine. Does it really look like Antarctica? ;)

Pierwsze zdjęcie po tytule trochę mnie zaskoczyło... Ale przecież leje się nie tylko wosk, zwłaszcza w szczególnym dniu..;)

a mnie Twój wosk przypomina kształtem krakowskiego Lajkonika - pewnie pojedziesz służbowo do Krakowa ;)) ale oczywiście życzę aby Twoja interpretacja była prawdziwa i aby sprawdziła się :))
