Languages of publication
During Advent, in one catholic village in southeast Moravia, families maintain an extra-liturgical folk ritual called 'carrying the Virgin Mary to bed', also called 'putting Mary to bed'. The Advent event (the expected arrival of the Son of God) and the figure of the Virgin Mary became present every year through this ritual; it takes place in the village and in the families in real time. This Advent tradition has paralles in Austria, Bavaria and in Slovenia in the 19th century and carries elements of pre-Vatican catholic worship into the 21th century. It presents the shared message of the cult of the Virgin Mary through the songs.
