About Djurdjevdan
The Serbian-orthodox Roma consider him as their patron saint. In the Orthodox Church year, Djurdjevdan (George’s Day) falls on the 6th of May, but the festivities begin one day earlier. The Muslim counterpart to the Orthodox George’s Day – herdelezi – comes from the Turk name hıdrelez, which is a blending of hızır and Elias. Both djurdjevdan and herdelezi are celebrated in different ways depending on the groups and the religion. The significance and meaning of the celebration, however, are the same. It is a spring celebration lasting several days which marks the beginning of summer and allegedly brings good fortune and wealth. Djurdjevdan and herdelezi can be celebrated for up to a week. In most groups, all Roma of the town or city meet on the town square and, as the highlight of the celebration, give a big party with music and dance.
