Saint Elijah’s Day
August 7, 2007
This took place on 20th July (they called it St.Ilinden) and seems to involve feeding the ‘poor’ of the village. Quite a lot of people then! Stefan witnessed the killing of the sheep inside the church and they had candles place on their horns. He was taken aback by this as had no idea what to expect. I met someone who had been tortured by the communists and labelled a ‘hooligan’. He was caught listening to The Beatles.
