However the counter of the newcomer of custom consisted in consumption of a special type of the cakes filled with whipped cream and watered with glaze and was accepted on “ hurrah “ not only sweet teeth, and and local bakers who thought at once as far as to them this holiday will be favorable.
For children festive morning of Day of cakes had to begin with the fact that they, having risen a bit earlier and having armed with the decorated clownish switch, began to awake parents, crying out at the same time “ bollur! bollur! “ (name of cakes). What is interesting, initially it had to look as castigation of itself … Perhaps, the tradition is turned to the Passion of the Christ or maybe originates in pagan rite of awakening of forces of nature. But now it is only a national entertainment which won the hearts of people.
How many time will be cried out terrible by the gourmand with a switch of the name of cakes, it is so much them and will receive. Then children went to streets where they were necessary to march under own loud singing and to come into bakeries and candy stores, “ earning “ to there jokes and verses “ sweet livelihood “. For pig-headed confectioners phrases of type were prepared in advance: “ here honor children! “ So it was moved that the fresh tasty " cakes; bollur “ appear in bakeries some days before a holiday now - on pleasure not only to children, but also all sweet teeth.
