The Feast of Buzmi, or the generous Buzmi (Albanian: Buzmi Bujar), is the pagan feast of the resurrection of the sunrise, a holiday that coincides with the winter solstice or mid-winter on December 21. After 22, where is the night peak, the day begins and is extended, and the Sun "rises" to the northern peoples as they go back to the horizon. In Albanian lands is known as the generous Buzmi and the ritual has been kept alive even nowadays. It is known with the names of the mid-winter or the "night of the lily" (Dukagjin Nikaj-Mërtur), Kshnellat, Corners, Daydream (Mirditë), winter environment (Lumë), which takes place on December 24, "The return of the sun from the summer." The characteristic of this celebration is the "generous boss", a huge trunk that is placed in the hearth and lights up this night. Buzmi with fire, warmth, and day resembles the sun, so they congratulate him and feast as if he were the one bringing the summer. The Church tried to destroy this ritual, replacing it with the birth of Christ and keeping some of the pagan rites, but the ancient Illyrian faith still lives in Albanian lands with a number of Albanians who celebrate it by the ancient Illyrian-rite ritual.
