Measuring the Sheep’s Milk in Méra. Csernók Gabriella Éva writes her report on this traditional spring event which happens at Saint George’s Day every year in this village in Transylvania’s Kalotaszeg region. It is the celebration marking of the first time the sheep are let out to pasture in the spring, the measuring of the first milking afterwards and establishment of the economic parameters for the summer sheep milking season. There are age old rituals involved, music and a ball. Young Hungarians from Hungary often travel to Méra for this event.
