There are various different customs these days, but no other celebration is so full of symbols like the 30th of November. Legends from Bukovina say that on this night wolves start to talk and move their stuffed necks. The one who wants to hear what the wolves say, will die quickly and the person who will be attacked by one, will become a werewolf. Dead Poltergeists,” the ones who leave their hiding place without being aware of it” and Living Poltergeists (people born with a tail, one extra vertebra, as a result of an incestuous relationship, etc.) meet to choose supremacy. The most intense activity of the Living Poltergeists is registered on the Ghosts’ Night (29/30 November) when they leave their bodies through the chimney , roll 3 times to transform into an animal (wolf, cat, dog, etc. ) and go to places that only they know to meet with the Dead Poltergeists.
There they transform themselves back into humans, fight and hurt themselves till one is chosen as a leader for another year.They cry for one another, then instantly heal their wounds , transform themselves again into animals and go back to their homes before the rooster sings for the first time. On the day before Sangiorz (22/23 April) they leave again their bodies to go and steal the milk from cows, ruin bulls or destroy men’s power. In certain situations, they react violently to the people who didn’t take some caution measures: “When ghosts don’t have someone to fight with, they go and suck the blood of people who are misfortunate enough to fall into their hands” but some of them are thought to be harmless.
