On March 22, 2017, I spent a day at my friend’s village, watched her make byrek, marked on trees in chicken blood, and had a lucky night!
The highlight of my night was picking the byrek with the lekë. It is a tradition that one who picks the byrek with a coin inside will be lucky for a year. LUCKILY, I was lucky to get my coin.
