Perperitsa is custom for rainfall. In times of great drought, the inhabitants dressed a girl in white with flowers and leaves and went from house to house together and rained her down. The drops that fell on the ground symbolized the rain. As they went from house to house, they sang. The housewives gave the girl eggs, milk and flour to make pies which they would distribute to the villagers.
