One of the beliefs leads us to the cult of ancestors, which is prominently featured in Christmas rituals. On "Holy Eve" (Christmas Eve), the evening dinner, consisting, in the Lubensk district, mainly of kuti and uzvar (dried fruit decoction), has a family and, in particular, memorial character: kuti is left for the night for deceased relatives; according to popular belief, vague reflections of small, doll-like people descending to the table can be seen on the wall. The ancient Slavs met the New Year with songs, dances, jokes of the dressed-up people, funny pranks. This cycle of rites received the general name - carols. Caroled in Russia since December 25. They dressed up in leather, put on scary masks, went from house to house, sang songs. It was still dark, on the early New Year's morning, there was a knock on the door or window. The owners already guessed who was knocking and opened the door hospitably. Guests entered the house, scattering bread grains around the house and chanting:
В двенадцать священных ночей родился золотоликий Божич - молодое Солнце - Дажбог, серебряный Ясн-Луна и святая Богиня-Мать воды Дана, а значит и все живущее на земле. "Бог-Коляда приходит в мир со светом и добром, победив зло и тьму. В Рождестве солнца Коляды - праздник света Дажбога, великий праздник Жизни, праздник Предков, праздник Счастья и Воли. Все сущее на земле: человек, весь растительный и животный мир почитают бога Коляду, опекуна молодого Божича-Солнца, встречая рождение света Дажбожьего Святым ужином, Святыми мыслями и Святым единством душ.
In twelve holy nights, the golden-faced God was born - the young Sun - Dazhbog, the silvery Yasn-Moon and the holy Goddess-Mother of Water Dana, which means that everything lives on earth. "The God Kolyada comes into the world with light and good, defeating evil and darkness. In the Christmas of the sun, Kolyada is a festival of the light of Dazhbog, a great festival of Life, a festival of Ancestors, a festival of Happiness and Freedom. Everything on earth: man, all plant and animal life they honor the god Kolyada, the guardian of the young Bozhich-Sun, meeting the birth of the light of Dazhbozhie with the Holy Supper, Holy Thoughts and the Holy Unity of Souls.
