Easter ~ Madder is the name of the Slavic goddess symbolising winter and death, so called straw effigy, whose destruction was to ensure a good harvest in the coming year. The church tried to ban this rite, as it were "interchangeable" with the introduction of the turn of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries discharge from the church tower in effigy symbolising Judas, but this habit is not accepted. Drowning Marzanna in Upper Silesia was usually on the second Sunday before Easter.
