It was a full day, with the right to visit the Herdade, with the arrangement of the cob branches, the kids olive oil tasting and even the sticking of the labels personalized by each child.
For us Bejenses, the day of the cob is very important. That’s why on this day we live a tradition that was passed on to us as little ones and that, today, we also pass it on to our children.On Cob Day, also known as Ascension Thursday, the consecration of Spring is celebrated. According to tradition, each plant on the branch has a meaning:
- Spike – represents bread;
- Marigold – represents wealth;
- Poppy – represents love;
- Oliveira – represents peace;
- Rosemary – represents health;
- Vine – represents joy.
It was an amazing day!
