Baba Yaga's Magic

Dec 15, 2022

There is a Ukrainian saying, “the wood stove is our own dear mother,” In times past and even in rural areas today, Slavic people are dependent on their pich, or their wood stove, to heat their home, cook their food, warm the water for washing and so much more. But like all Slavic items, it is a place of magic as well as practicality. In this episode we’ll be learning about the pich and how it was considered a magical place, a sacred site within the khata and the home of the beloved ancestors. So, as the weather is getting crisper, cozy up to the fire with me, warm your hands and learn about the magic of the Slavic wood stove.
