Paslejdn’ca 2019 is a traditional village holiday in Bača pri Podbrdu, Baška grapa. After the holy mass in the church of St. Lenart, a social gathering with a memorial to the mountain’s mother will follow and in the old dairy the performance of the singing group.

Last Sunday in the church calendar year at Bača pri Podbrdu, they celebrate village holiday Pasljedn’ca. Society Baška Heritage, in cooperation with the emigrants, strives to create an event with a more and more lively image. On that day, the relatives came to visit and gathered after holy mass at their place and those from distant places also slept there. The village was always expecting them thoroughly clean, and the houses smelled of homemade delicacies.

The invited singing group will also sing together at the memorial to the mountain mother at the old diary, which was erected by Society Baška Heritage on September 16th, 2012. Like a picture from sand, it was made by the painter Stanka Golob. She portrayed a woman – mother, who goes to work with an indispensable basket on her back. With her message and prestige she symbolizes mountain mothers, who with the inhuman grind on steep fields and even more steeper, even hours of walking distant, mountain meadows worked, loved and hated, but kept many homesteads and her kinship to this day. Their stories are written on a plaque in verses of domestic folks poems Marjuče Volf: »… the double load they carried, a basket on the back, under the heart the call of life …«.
