For many years, young girls from Nisovo have been gathering in the local community home on this day, to practice the ritual of Lazaritsa, filling the village with their songs all day long. They are dressed in traditional folklore costumes, and as they go round the houses, they sing ritual Lazarki songs and bless for health, happiness and abundance.
Young women pick flowers for the wreaths they are going to make on Palm Sunday.
