Babin Den/ Midwives Day

Today many women of the village gathered together to celebrated 'Babin Den' which translates as Midwives Day.

There was lots of singing and dancing and this year my neighbours managed to dress me in traditional costume.
This outfit is over a 100 years old (made Jerry look about the same) and is the traditional dress that was once worn by the mother of my good friend Ginka's husband Vasil.
It was a little too big but it was an honour to be allowed to wear it.
