Celebrating the coming spring in the vineyard – Diane Quantic – Bulgaria 1986

On February 14, 1987, we joined the other foreign professors  from the Veliko Turnovo University at a cooperative farm and school, a young girl in traditional dress bringing a ceremonial offering of bread to the vineyard, ceremoniously pruning the vines, spreading feasts in the snow for all, then watching a parade of decorated tractors and workers, then another feast inside a banquet hall, enjoying a disco, returning to Veliko Turnovo with bottles of good Bulgarian wine and memories of a day celebrating with Bulgarians one of their national days.
