Baba Vanga Biography in Greater Details

In this little house Baba Vanga and her sister Lubka, lived alone for the years to come, as their brothers despite being so young, went to work as shepherds and servants.

People from the nearby villages and town, spread the word that Baba Vanga can knit well, and often they would bring thread so she can knit by request. They did not pay her money, but would bring some food or would leave her some small things or thread. From the thread Baba Vanga made clothes for her siblings, but didn’t do anything for herself, as she was not leaving the house anyways. People that knew how poor Baba Vanga’s family is, were donating the clothes of women that passed away, so Baba Vanga can wear them.

Baba Vanga learned how to weave too. She showed Lubka, how to connect the threads, and she was working until late at night. It was common for Baba Vanga to cry out of desperation late at night. During the day she would not show signs of sorrow, to avoid being pitied by the neighbours and scaring Lubka at the same time, but at night she would let her emotions flow and relief her heavy burden.

In the morning they were getting up very early, as Baba Vanga always said that there is much to be done. She hated to be idle, and did not like idle people around her. She wanted everywhere to be tidy and presentable. There was a schedule. Monday was dedicated for the laundry, Tuesday – sweeping the floor and the yard, Wednesday was for patching up the clothes. Vanga taught Lubka how to sew and was strict with her expectations. She would touch the patch, and if she didn’t like the stitchery, she would rip the patch and ask Lubka to do it again. Often Lubka cried as the clothes for fixing were always a lot, and she wanted to play with the other kids, but Baba Vanga was firm, everything had to be done right. Thursday was the day for bread baking. Friday, they went to the river to dig red looking clay, and after that, paint the house with this free material. Saturday they were gathering nettle and dock for food. Sunday was church day – it was usually Sunday afternoon when the women from the nearby villages visited Baba Vanga to pick the items that she knitted for them. They would gather in the small yard to chat. Baba Vanga was very social, with strong sense of humour, and everybody loved talking to her.

There was an interesting custom in “Struma” region. The night before “Gergiov Den” (Bulgarian holiday) the young women were placing notes inside a clay jar, and in the morning they were “reading” their fortune. Usually they left the clay jar in Baba Vanga’s yard under a dark red rose, that looked like a little tree. Maybe out of compassion because she was blind, Baba Vanga was most often selected to be the oracle that would interpret the fortunes. It was very interesting that whatever Baba Vanga predicted, later was becoming a fact. Everyone was very astonished, but no one yet suspected that Baba Vanga had a gift. On another holiday, the unmarried women would go to the river and place branches together resembling a bridge. The belief was, that during the night a dream will come that will show the girl who is going to be her future husband. In the morning no one was able to surprise Baba Vanga. She was able to describe the dream, before the person who dreamt it was able to tell anyone.
