New! Candies for Kadri and Mart Estonian Life
PHOTO Well, it has finally happened. Kalev confectionary company in Eesti began producing both Hallowe'en AND mardi- and kadri/päeva (St. Martin's and St. Katherine's Day) kommi/segu, candy mixes this fall. Pictured here are the latter, good for use on 2 täht/päevad (celebratory days) and unisex at that. This makes it somewhat easier to hand out treats to kids on Estonia's two traditional masked holidays of "running" as beggars, well-wishing, singing, dancing and fortune telling on the eve before mardi/päev (9. nov.) as dark, lurking-in-the-shadows boys and on the eve before kadri/päev (25. nov) as snow-white girls.
