The Feast Kyjov, Česko

Description

This text was translated using Google Translate.

The Feast is part of the traditional holidays in almost every Moravian village. It is celebrated as a Christian holiday, but also as a day of abundance, joy and prosperity. The rich table of a Feast is a place where families and friends meet. The tradition does not have any specific date; it is different from village to village, and it is usually held on the day of the patron saint of the local church. Some well-known Feasts are St. Katharine’s, St. Wenceslas and St. Martin's, as well as the Emperor's, created by Emperor Joseph II in an attempt to unify all the dates. A Feast cannot be complete without the 'Chasa', groups of young people dressed in ceremonial folk costumes. The main figures of the Feast is the 'chief' (a chosen boy) and his girl. The Chasa's job is to organise the Feast, choose a maypole in the forest (a tall tree that will be adorned after being brought to the village), decorate the dance-floor and procure music and wine. On Sunday morning, the costumed Chasa meet at the church to hear the festive mass, after which, in some regions, the chiefs go around the village, door to door, inviting everyone to the Feast. The celebration itself usually starts in the afternoon with the handing over of the Rights (Feast with Rights). The rights are handed over by the town's alderman to the head chief as a symbol of the chief's powers over the Chasa for the duration of the Feast. In some places, the Rights is a traditionally decorated sabre (Slovácko), in other places, it is symbolised by a wreath (Kyov). The Rights must be carefully guarded, loosing it would be the biggest disgrace for the chief. The procession is different in every village. In Velké Pavlovice, for example, the boys meet at a restaurant in the afternoon and, together with a band, go to the house of the head chief, where all the costumed girls are waiting, and where the head chief with his girl dance three solos; then the procession starts its way through the town. You can be invited to the Feast by friends or family, or watch it as a visitor.
