Employee of the Institute of Folklore made a speech about pre-Tuesday at ARB 24 TV

PhD, associate professor Ilhama Gasabova, an employee of the Department of “Mythology” of the Institute of Folklore of ANAS joined ARB 24 TV online and spoke about the pre-Tuesday. She said that the Novruz holiday, which is considered a masterpiece of our holidays, means to meet the first day of spring and equalize night and day. Being the symbol of our existence, Novruz holiday combines a complex of myths, archaic ceremonies, games and performances, traditions, songs and music, many genres of epic and lyrical dramatic folklore related to holiday, as well as countless traditions up to kitchen household issues. She noted that our people attach special importance to “Tuesday”s on the eve of Novruz holiday and that our first “pre-Tuesday” – “Water” is a sacred object of trust that brings happiness among pre-Tuesdays.
