Ivan Kupala Day

Ivan Kupala was originally a pagan pre-cristian holiday. The name of this holiday combines the words "Ivan", the Slavic name of John (the Baptist), and Kupala, a word derived from the Slavic word for bathing - as it was the first day of the year when the church sanctioned bathing and swimming in rivers and ponds. The holiday is still enthusiastically celebrated by Russian youth. In some regions, Ivan Kupala Day is considered the first day of the swimming season, when the water of lakes and rivers becomes warm enough.

Many of the rites related to this holiday within Slavic religious beliefs, due to the ancient Kupala rites, are connected with the role of water in fertility and ritual purification. Youths would jump over the flames of bonfires. Girls would float wreaths of flowers often lit with candles on rivers and would attempt to gain foresight into their relationship fortunes from the flow patterns of the flowers on the river. Men may attempt to capture the wreaths, in the hope of capturing the interest of the woman who floated the wreath... read more at en.wikipedia.org.

Народный языческий праздник "Иван Купала"

Народный языческий праздник "Иван Купала" отмечается в России, Белоруссии и на Украине в дни летнего солнцестояния 24 июня. В некоторых местах "Иван Купала" празднуется 7 июля (24 июня по старому стилю). Иванов день имеет старинную традицию празднования по всей Европе. Название праздника возникло в результате совмещения дня Иоанна (Ивана) Крестителя, который стал отмечаться после принятия христианства на Руси, и дохристианского славянского праздника Купало, посвящённого древнему языческому богу Купале... читать дальше на вебсайте wikipedia.org.

Купала в свое время олицетворял прадавнего бога весны (в еще более раннее время — и самого Солнца), которому и был посвящен достаточно многообразный цикл весенних праздников. Между чернью праздник Ивана Купала назывался Яриловым днем, иногда его называли еще Ярилки. Он во многом был похож на празднование Иванового дня, т.к. сами гулянья проводились ночью, возле костров на возвышенном месте у реки. Возможно, что Купала — более позднее название праздника у восточных славян, когда он был приурочен ко дню Иоанна Предтечи. Но в некоторых местностях сохранил свое древнее название, связанное с Богом Ярилой. Наши предки считали, что Ярила (Яр-Хмель) — это олицетворение весны в мужском облике, воплощение избытка силы, мужества и вожделения, какие проявляются в теплое и плодотворное время года.

Родословная этого Божества весьма интересна и имя его стоит рядом с Перуном, Хорсом, Дажьбогом и Стрибогом, а также загадочным божеством Симарглом. Христолюбец в своем «Слове», повторяя имена языческих богов, имя Симаргла разделяет и записывает так: «Веруют в Перуна… И в Сима и в Рыгла». Если заменить мягкий знак и «г» на букву «ы», то получится — «Сима» и «Ерыла». Есть еще один день, на кануне Ивана Купала, который позволяет глубже проникнуть в мелодику праздника, и называют его днем Аграфены Купальницы. Оказывается, оба праздника образуют своеобразную парность, смысл которой в... читать дальше на вебсайте aliveplanet.narod.ru.
