The legend about Martin, the Whitehorse rider
The 11th November is a day, which is celebrated as the day of St. Martin. Traditionally, this day is connected with the first snow falling, feasting and the first wine made from the last harvest. St. Martin's Day is undoubtedly one of the most popular Christian holidays. Many associate it with the first snow (which is supposed to be symbolically expressed by Martin's white horse), a tasting of young wine of a slowly ending year, and a baked juicy goose.
