Guarding the garlic

Guarding garlic usually takes place on the night of November 29 to 30, the eve of St. Andrew. 10-12 women gather together with friends at a pre-established house. Young girls 3 crowns garlic, a bagle or a loaf is put on a red tablecloth. Two old ladies guard garlic until 12, and then the young come out and “play garlic”. When they finish, each one takes a few cloves of garlic that they guard as a cure for various diseases of humans and animals as well as for love spells.
