The butterfly jumps, waves her hands and goes round in a circle. The woman of the house takes out a bucket of water with a few drops of wine in it and pours it over the dancing butterfly. The latter sprinkles everybody for health, rain and fertility. To thank the “priestess”, bearer of good, the woman of the house gives the girls a sieve full of white flour, butter, cheese, eggs and sweets. To the butterfly she gives small coins, a jewelry or a dress. On going out of the house the woman rolls the empty sieve and they guess on it whether the year will be good or bad.
