Three Kings Day

From historian Chris Bennett:

“…Today in Poland and Lithuania, and in former times also in Russia, on Christmas Eve when it is believed that the dead visit their families, a soup made of hemp seeds, called ‘semieniatka,’ is served for the dead souls to savor. In Latvia and the Ukraine, a dish made of hemp was prepared for Three Kings Day.” -Sula Benet, Early Diffusions and Folk Uses of Hemp, (1975)
