Preparations for St. Martin’s Day

November 10, 2019

 

St. Martin’s Day is one of the merriest and most colourful holidays in the Estonian folk calendar. On this day children and adults dress in old shabby coats, smear their faces with soot and go door to door singing songs, asking riddles and wishing good luck and happiness to the families.  

At the Estonian Open Air museum you can learn about the customs of St. Martin’s Day and make a beggar’s mask for yourself.
