World Traditions

In 12th century Russia, the eastern Slavs worshiped the winter mother goddess, Rozhnitsa, offering sacrifices such as honey, bread and cheese. Bright colored winter embroideries depicting the antlered goddess were made to honor the Feast of Rozhanitsa in late December. And white, deer-shaped cookies were given as lucky gifts. Some Russian women continued the observation of these traditions into the 20th century.
