Some Roma still celebrate Vasilica as part of traditional Roma holidays

In some Roma families, Vasilica is celebrated with many old customs that are common to Roma, but also with many local customs that are specific to a particular area where Roma live.

Vasilica is one of the traditional Roma holidays, which is celebrated on January 14. The holiday is closely related to the Roma New Year, which is celebrated on January 13 and lasts for the next four days. Folklore is celebrated on Vasilica, according to which care is taken for the goose that is being chased to be facing east. According to legend, the Roma who escaped through the water from the attack of the attackers, God helped them by sending geese to save them from drowning. It is therefore common on this day to slaughter poultry, not exclusively geese.
