Cheese Throwing

In southern Bulgaria lumps of freshly brined cheese were thrown at newly married couples to promote fertility.

Cheese was also thrown at anyone coming to the table at the St George’s day feast, again to encourage health and fertility.

Some farmers even brought their livestock to the table so they could throw cheese at their sheep.
