MOIECIU ? Pork?s alms


Moieciu Commune has a high touristic potential, which places it in the top of the mountain resorts in Brasov County. The local administration capitalizes all forms of tourism by different projects aiming at promoting the natural and cultural inheritance. Due to the development during the past years of the mountain agritourism, there were built modern villas, vacation houses, guesthouses and hotels. The area is monthly visited by almost 9.000 tourists, out of which more than 3.500 are accommodated in the hotels and guesthouses in the area, and the percentage of foreign tourists is of almost 30%.

Promoting the traditions

?At the beginning of December, we organize the event called <> (Pork?s alms), an event which is part of a project for promoting customs and traditions of the area. This year, we combine the traditional event with the social one. Practically, 3 or 4 pigs are going to be sacrificed, out of which traditional products will be cooked, which will be donated to the 3 nursing homes for old people within the administrative and territorial area of the commune. On this occasion, a traditional dinner will be organized, accompanied by artistic moments?, told us Mr. Mircea Manea, Mayor of Moieciu commune.

The sacrifice of the pig

The tradition says that the pigs shall be sacrificed in the St. Ignatius day, celebrated on the 20th of December, a Christian holiday also known as ?Ignat ? pig?s day?. The entire day must be dedicated to sacrifice the pig, sorting and cooking pork specialties.
After slicing and sorting the meat, the host cooks a meal for all the people who helped to sacrifice the pig. The dish, traditionally called ?Pork?s alms?, is made by frying in a big tin kettle pieces of the meat of the sacrificed animal. After the Pig?s alms, the housewives make sausages, hog?s pudding, toba, and other specific products for the ?Nativity of Jesus? festive meal.
