Who is Trifon Zarezan
On February 14th Bulgarians celebrate Trifon Zarezan – one of the oldest customs in the Bulgarian national calendar. This is a labor custom related to the first processing of the vine of the year – its spring pruning. The other names of the holiday are Zarezanovden, Trifun Chipia, Trifun Zarezoi, Trifun pianitsa. Nouns are Trifon, Trifonka, Lozan, Lozanka, Grozdan, Grozdanka, Radko, Radka, Racho. Vintners, gardeners and innkeepers celebrate on this day.
In Bulgaria, Trifonovden was celebrated originally on February 14. Saint Trifon, who helped farmers, winemakers, and hoteliers, gave his name to the holiday.After using the Gregorian calendar, people started celebrating it on February 1 and February 14 became Vintner’s Day. Despite the existence of disparities and ambiguity, it is evident that in Bulgarian culture, the two holidays are intertwined. And also this is demonstrated by the fact that the saint is often shown as a young person with cutting tools.
Saint Tryphon was born in Asia Minor in 227 AD. These places were once home to vines and wine. He became famous for being able to heal people and for helping the daughter of the emperor Gordian. A powerful Roman ruler named Decius Trajan hated Christians intensely and killed him when he was 21 years old. Because he still believes in God. In old pictures, the saint holds a sickle-shaped tool called a koser. Maybe Bulgarians believed that he was a vine grower and cutter because of this.
