There is a custom that still exists today, a magic for more fertility - "Beard cutting", these are the largest wheat-ears of the field. In folk belief, the "beard" is a symbol of "fertile wisdom". The harvest ended with a "beard" and special ritual actions. This is followed by a ritual washing of the hands of the women - reapers and cutting off the "beard", which shall be done by the best maiden with a single cut. Then the reapers leave for the village, saying goodbye to the field. “Goodbye, field, may there be bigger ears, more blessings next year so we will reap you again!”. A young woman who has a fiancé and a wedding follows in the autumn carries the “beard” on the way to the village, so that it will bring luck to the bride and to the village.
