Summary/Abstract: The idea of this project came in the context of complex field research carried out under the Project PN-III-P2-2.1-BG-2016-0390 eCULTFOOD that aims to document the food heritage of the region of Bacӑu. Invited to describe or prepare recipes specific to winter holidays, people have built up ample accounts about the practices and traditions of Christmas, New Year, Epiphany, and St. Andrew, some of these characterized by a surprising vitality at the community level, and others living only in the memories of the storytellers. From this narrative option of our interlocutors, there was born the project e-FestMemoria.Capitalizing on immaterial heritage. The winter holidays in Bacău County. The research was based on the interest of people in the villages from the county of Bacău in accounts about past holidays, which were documented through the ethnographic experiment, the semi-direct type of interview and participatory observation. Built on the basis of bibliographic documentation and specialized archives, by consulting the answers to the Romanian Data Collection Program (1884) and the questionnaires of the “Folk Archive” of the Romanian Academy (1931-1941) from the localities of Bacӑu County, the interview guide was organized according to topic-themes regarding winter holidays traditions and practices, either active today or present exclusively in the memory of the interlocutors
