The study deals with the recovery of the ritual plotting of Morena, which collapsed in our country in the mid-20th century. The introduction refers to this phenomenon as being an archaic element of culture, being recorded via the statements of the Church in its prohibitions directed against it, later via description made by scientists. In addition to the pre-Christian basis of this phenomenon the study points towards a possibility to be of Byzantine – Slavic contexts. Further the stimulating elements that helped revive the defunct phenomenon traditions are discussed. The conclusions deal with the state of society, the nature of the change of the current thinking in relation to each element of tradition. In conclusion, we point out new models of cultural and social lives within which archaic form of habits are perceived as more valuable.
