Gregorjevo – Lovers’ day

In Slovenia, we have our own version of Valentine’s Day; it is called Gregorjevo (Saint Gregory´s Day) and is linked to an old folk custom announcing that birds are getting married and spring is coming. We send lights down the river Kokra, illuminating the whole canyon beneath the city. On the eve of St. Gregory’s Day it is a tradition to let little boats with candles float down rivers. We meet at the banks of the Kokra River to say goodbye to short winter days with this custom and to welcome the spring that is coming, bringing with it more sunlight and warmth.
