Feliz dia da Espiga!

Happy the ear of wheat day!

This is a very old, “Christian” (they misspelled pagan, there), Portuguese tradition.

Today, we pick up (or buy) a bouquet of wild flowers containing the following:

  • Olive branch for olive oil, light and peace
  • Marigolds for fortune
  • Ears of wheat (even if wild) for bread
  • Rosemary for health and strength
  • Poppies for love and life
  • Vine for wine and joy

You keep it behind your door for a year. For success and prosperity, for health and strength, for luck, for happiness and love…

In 2 Winters, when you already have a new bouquet of wild flowers, you may burn in your fireplace this year’s bouquet, for good luck.

May your bouquets of wild flowers bring you what you need in life.
