Apple Spas

Natalia L. Rudychev
Apple Spas is a holiday celebrated on August 19. This is the day when apples are blessed. After the Apple Spas evenings get cooler and autumn begins. It is customary to enjoy apple pies, stewed apples and apple jam during this celebration.

Thank you! My Granny passed away long ago. But every time I celebrate Apple Spas I remember the smell of her shawl that comforted me on cold evenings.. and her kindness.
