Ukrainians sanctify special bouquets “Maccabees” flowers with poppy heads, marigold, mint, calendula, thyme. This holiday is called Honey Spas since at that time people collect honey from the hives.
August 19 is the feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord, or the Second Savior Feast.

On this feast according to the ancient custom people sanctify pears, apples, honey, wreaths or a bundle of ears of rye and wheat. Therefore, they call this day Apple Spas [Transfiguration Day].
The Third Savior Feast Day is celebrated on August 29. On this day, we honor the transfer from Edessa to Constantinople Ubrus, our Lord Jesus Christ`s image on was reflected the cloth. People call it Bread or Nut Spas, because its celebration time coincides with the end of the harvest period and collection of hazelnuts.
