Paganalia (also called Sementivae, Feriae Sementivae or Sementina dies) it was a Roman holiday in honor of Ceres (the goddess of vegetation and fertility) and Tellus (goddess of fertility), so-called sowing festival. Celebrated on February 2. On that day, sacrifices were made in the form of traditional sacrificial cakes, homemade baked goods and a pregnant sow for Ceres and Mater Tellus, thus asking for protection of the crops against birds, ants, cold weather, bad weather, weeds and parasites.
