Festivals and Rites - 2009 Belarus S20R Spasy

The Apple Feast of the Savior - The holiday has a pre-Christian origin and is associated with harvesting of ripe fruits, especially apples. In the Byzantine Empire there was tradition to bless harvested grapes during the Feast of Transfiguration. In Russia, apples are more common than grapes, hence the name of the feast. There are processions and blessings of harvests. Usually, on that day, people from Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus eat apples, apple pies, or other dishes containing apples, even if they are not Orthodox Christians.
