The wonderful story of the 40 Martyrs. customs

The 40 holy martyrs of Sevastia, martyred during the Roman emperor Licinius, are mentioned on March 9, in the Orthodox calendar.

Romanians call this holiday the Day of the Grinders. It is considered in the popular calendar the beginning of the Agrarian Year, celebrated on the border between winter and summer.

On the day of Măcinici, two holidays of seasonal renewal of time overlapped: the last day of Baba Dochia, when she dies and transforms into a stone sheepfold, and the first day of Santa Claus.

Grinders are also called the spirits of the elders and ancestors. The feast in the popular calendar corresponds, as a calendar date and, partially, as a significance, with the 40 Holy Martyrs in the church calendar, sacrificed for their faith in the city of Sevastia.

”The most spectacular magical practice of Măcinici was the lighting of fires at dawn through courtyards and gardens. Next to the fires, chairs were placed where the souls of the dead who came to spend the New Year celebrated in spring rested, warmed and feasted.

On this day, the villages in the south of the country were confused with huge clouds of smoke. The fires lit with the garbage resulting from the cleaning of the courtyards, gardens and household annexes had practical value. But they also had ritual significance: supporting the Sun to overcome the equilibrium point reached at the spring equinox ", explains Ion Ghinoiu, in the book" The calendar of the Romanian peasant.
