Botosani - Traditii si obiceiuri

În Bucovina, sarbatorile au fost tinute din cele mai vechi timpuri au fost pastrate în mare parte si astazi. Toate obiceiurile sunt strâns legate de marile sarbatori din calendarul crestin, cum ar fi Craciunul, Boboteaza,Pa?tele, Sânzâienele sau de momentele esentiale ale vietii ca nasterea, botezul, nunta sau moartea.

Craciunul in Bucovina

Craciunul este sarbatoarea care se pastreaza, poate, mai mult decât în alte parti, fara mari abateri de la traditie. În preajma Craciunului, se recupereaza sau se restituie lucrurile împrumutate prin sat, deoarece se considera ca nu este bine sa ai lucruri împrumutate pe durata sarbatorilor de iarna.

În ziua de Ajun, femeile obisnuiesc sa ascunda fusele de la furca de tors sau sa introduca o piatra în cuptor, crezând ca indeparteaza, în acest fel, serpii din preajma gospodariei. În dimineata aceleiasi zile se obisnuia, pâna de curând, ca femeia sa iasa afara, cu mâinile pline de aluat, sa mearga în livada si sa atinga fiecare pom zicând: "cum sunt mâinile mele pline cu aluat, asa sa fie pomii încarcati cu rod la anul".

Datinile de Craciun sunt pregatite cu mult înainte, odata cu Postul Craciunului (15 noiembrie), când încep sa se constituie cetele de colindatori si se învata colindele ce vor fi rostite în timpul marii sarbatori.

Pastele in Bucovina

Pastele, alaturi de Craciun este una dintre cele mai importante sarbatori ale crestinatatii. Sarbatoarea începe de fapt cu Duminica Floriilor, când se sarbatoreste intrarea Mântuitorului în Ierusalim si continua cu Saptamâna Mare care are menirea împartasirii patimilor lui Hristos si sfârsitul celor 40 de zile de post.

Bucovina este recunoscuta pentru traditia pastrata nepatat pâna în zilele noastre legate de obiceiurile locului si de încondeiatul oualor. În Bucovina, în noaptea de Pasti, exista obiceiul aprinderii „focurilor de veghe”. Pe dealuri si coline sunt aprinse focuri puternice care ard toata noaptea. În jurul lor, se aduna satenii care povestesc întâmplari din viata lui Iisus, iar baietii sar pe deasupra focului, pentru a îndeparta duhurile rele. Tot în Bucovina, se obisnuieste ca, în noaptea de Înviere, fetele sa mearga în clopotnita bisericii din sat si sa spele limba clopotului cu „apa neînceputa”. Apa neînceputa presupune ca persoana care a scos-o din fântâna sa nu vorbeasca pâna când apa va fi folosita la spalatul clopotului. Apoi, în zorii zilei de Pasti, fetele se spala cu aceasta apa ca sa fie frumoase si atragatoare tot anul.

 De o frumusete si bogatie deosebita sunt si obiceiurile calendaristice de peste an.

Hramurile sunt si ele obiceiuri calendarilstice, legate de praznuirea patronilor bisericilor, prilej de întâlnire a familiilor cu rudele si cu membrii ce locuiesc în alte localitati.

Cele mai renumite hramuri din judet sunt cele de la Suceava de Sfântul Ioan sau Sânzâienele si cele de la Putna si Cacica de Adormirea Maicii Domnului pe 15 august. La acestea cel mai important rol îl au slujbele religioase care aduna an de an zeci de mii de credinciosi veniti din toate colturile tarii.

Si cele mai importante momente ale vietii omului sunt sarbatorite în mod deosebit în Bucovina. În special satele din Bucovina pastreaza, în mare parte, obiceiurile traditionale legate de celebrarea momentelor esentiale ale vietii cum ar fi, nunta, nasterea-botezul si înmormântarea.

Botezul

Botezul este evenimentul care încununeaza nasterea. Traditia spune ca pentru înlaturarea fortelor malefice, imediat dupa nastere se realizeaza o serie de practici care au ca scop protejarea noului-nascut. Astfel, punerea unui fir de ata rosie în tocul usii si legarea lui apoi la mâna copilului are ca efect înlaturarea deochiului. Apoi, punerea unui ban de argint si busuioc în prima baie a copilului duc la purificarea apei în care se face scaldatoarea. Dupa ce este scos din cristelnita si miruit, nasii copilului primesc noul crestin într-o pânza alba  numita crisma. Apoi îi ofera finului în dar articole de îmbracaminte.

Un obicei foarte interesant era acela al schimbarii numelui copilului când acesta este bolnav si pare a nu mai avea scapare: femeile opreau o persoana de pe drum careia i se dadea copilul pe geam împreuna cu o lumânare. Persoana straina îi schimba numele si îi dadea mamei copilul pe usa. Dupa aceasta, copilul era strigat cu numele schimbat pentru a nu mai fi recunoscut de boala.

Nunta

Nunta – eveniment de mare importanta în viata fiecarui om, este un moment marcat de multe obiceiuri si traditii pastrate vii de locuitorii Bucovinei. Avanpremiera nuntii o reprezinta logodna care era o promisiune solemna a celor care se vor casatori, iar în Bucovina avea valoarea unei jumatati de cununii. Taina logodnei presupunea un adevarat ritual: petitul, acordul familiilor în legatura cu conditiile nuntii si cu zestrea fiecarui mire, logodna si abia apoi nunta.

În ziua nuntii, domnisoara de onoare vine acasa la mireasa, iar cavalerul de onoare se duce acasa la mire. Obiceiul spune ca în timplul ritualului de împodobire a miresei, acesta trebuie sa plânga. Daca acest lucru nu se întampla, o femeie în vârsta îi aduce o ceapa zdrobita pentru a-i produce lacrimi.

În mometul în care mirele vine sa-si ia de acasa viitoarea sotie, familia miresei închide usile pentru a-i opri intrarea. Dupa ce se tocmesc, usa se deschide iar mirele poate sa-si ia mireasa.

Un alt obicei pastrat în unele locuri din Bucovina este iertaciunea; la acest moment amândoi mirii stau cu fata spre rasarit, mireasa sta în genunchi pe o perna si un covor, iar mirele sta în picioare cu mâna stânga pe umarul miresei. Semnificatia pernei pe care sta mireasa este ca viata ei, în postura de  sotie sa fie usoara si placuta ca perna cea moale.

La biserica, când li se pun verighetele, cei doi miri urmeza un alt obicei, potrivit caruia  cel care-l va calca primul pe picior pe celalat va avea suprematia în casnicie. În dimineata nuntii, schimbarea gatelii capului miresei, ce marcheaza trecerea miresei de la statutul de fata la cel de femeie maritata, voalul fiind dat unei alte fete care urmeaza sa se casatoreasca, este un moment cu reguli traditionale care nu poate fi încalcat.

Inmormantarea

Înmormântarea este un alt moment important al vietii. Locuitorii Bucovinei au pastrat legat de acest eveniment obiceiuri si traditii menite sa agigure contiunerea vietii în credinta crestina si dupa moarte.

Vestirea mortii unei persoane, se face prin tragerea clopotelor bisericii de trei ori pe zi, lung, pâna în ziua când se îngroapa mortul, iar serile se suna din trâmbite la casa mortului.

Dupa datina, înmormântarea are loc în a treia zi dupa moarte. Sicriul se duce cu carul cu boi, de preferat de culoare neagra, carora li se pune în coarne câte un prosop si un colac. Daca de la casa mortului pâna la biserica nu e distanta mare, mortul se duce cu nasalia, iar cei ce-l duc poarta câte un prosop prins peste piept.

Daca cei decedati sunt tineri necasatoriti, ceremonialul înmormântarii cuprinde si elemente de nunta, cum ar fi faptul ca cei disparuti sunt îmbracati în mire sau mireasa, fiind condusi pe ultimul drum însotiti de brad, vornicel si muzica.

Indiferent de vârsta, pentru fiecare mort se pregateste pomul, dintr-o ramura de pom împodobita cu pâine în difertite forme( pasari, scari) si fructe, care în credinta populara reprezinta pomul vietii de dupa moarte.

Pomenirea mortilor se face în cele sapte slujbe din postul Pastelui, în sâmbata mortilor si în duminicile de peste an, precum si cu prilejul hramurilor din comune.

"I was awake one night and turned on my radio, and I heard them announce that Sam Walton was therichest find cheap michael kors bag man inAmerica. And I thought, 'Sam Walton. nike free run 2 Why, he was in my class.' And http://www.nikeoutlet-hot.com I got so excited."HELEN WILLIAMS,former history and Michael Kors handbags wholesale speech teacher atHickmanHigh SchoolinColumbia,MissouriSuccess has always had newbalance.com its price, I guess, and I learned Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet that lesson the hard way in October LV outlet of 1985whenForbes magazine named me the so-called Louis Vuitton "richest man inAmerica." Well, it wasn't too http://www.katespadeoutletst.com hard toimagine all those newspaper and TV Michael Kors watches for women folks up inNew Yorksaying "Who" and "He newbalance.com lives where" The nextthing we knew, reporters true religion outlet store and photographers started flocking down here to cheap new balance shoes Bentonville, I guess to takepictures of me kate spade bags diving into some swimming pool full of Michael Kors shoes online money they imagined I had, or to Michael Kors black purse watch me light bigfat cigars with $100 ture religion sale bills while the hootchy-kootchy girls danced by http://www.michaelkorssunglassespurse.biz the lake.

I really don't know what they michael kors handbags thought, but I wasn't about to cooperate Michael Kors bags wholesale with them. So they found out allthese louis vuitton handbags exciting things about me, like: I drove barbour factory outlet store an old pickup truck with cages in Michael Kors outlet sale the back for my bird dogs,or I michael kors wore a Wal-Mart ball cap, or I Michael Kors sandals got my hair cut at the barbershop Louis Vuitton just off the townsquaresomebody with a telephoto louis vuitton handbags lens even snuck up and took a barbour factory outlet store picture of me in the barber chair, gucci outlet online andit was in newspapers all over the High Heel Shoes country. Then folks we'd never heard of Kate Spade Bags started calling us and writing usfrom all katespade.com over the world and coming here to Michael Kors purses ask us for money. Many of them Kate Spade Online Sale represented worthy causes,I'm sure, but we also Christian Louboutin shoes online heard from just about every harebrained, cockamamy kate spade outlet schemer in the world. Iremember one letter http://www.louisvuitton-bags-2014.com from a woman who just came right christian louboutin online out and said, "I've never been able Cheap Moncler Jackets to afford the$100,000 house I've always wanted. http://www.findcheapmichaelkorsbag.com Will you give me the money" They true religion jeans still do it to this day, write http://www.outletchristianlouboutin13.com orcall asking for a new car, or Michael Kors store money to go on a vacation, or Michael Kors watch sale to get some dental workwhatever comesinto their cheap Michael Kors wallets minds.

Now, I'm a friendly fellow by natureI Nike Outlet always speak to folks in the street christian louboutin shoes and suchand my wife Helen isas genial Cheap Louis Vuitton Bags and outgoing as she can be, involved Nike Shoes On Sale in all sorts of community activities, and cheap Michael Kors watches we've always livedvery much out in the http://www.shopmoncleroutlet.com open. But we really thought there for cheap michael kors handbags hot sales a while that this "richest" thing was http://www.louisvuitton-bags-2014.com going toruin our whole lifestyle. We've always michael kors bags tried to do our share, but all michael kors outlet store online sale of a sudden everybody expected us topay Michael Kors wallets their way too. And nosy people from true religion outlet the media would call our house at http://www.louisvuittonoutletyears.com all hours and get downrightrude when we'd http://www.michaelkorsoutletonlinest.com tell them no, you can't bring a Moncler Coats TV crew out to the house, or true religion brand jeans no, we don't want yourmagazine to spend shopping michael kors watches a week photographing the lives of the Nike Free 3.0 Waltons, or no, I don't have time nba jerseys to share mylife story with you. It Moncler Outlet Store made me mad, anyway, that all they kate spade outlet online wanted to talk about was my family's Michael Kors handbags sale personalfinances. They weren't even interested in Wal-Mart, Christian Louboutin shoes which was probably one of the best michael kors outlet online store sale us business storiesgoing on anywhere in the world true religion outlet at the time, but it never even authentic michael kors handbags occurred to them to ask about thecompany. Michael Kors outlet handbags The impression I got is that most http://www.truereligionoutletrst.com media folksand some Wall Street types tooeither Michael Kors green purse thoughtwe were just a bunch of bumpkins louis vuitton outlet selling socks off the back of a http://www.michaelkorshandbagsoutlet-store.com truck, or that we were some kind michael kors bags on sale offast buck artists or stock scammers. And free run 2 when they did write about the company Michael Kors Black Friday Sale they either got it wrongor just made Louis Vuitton Sale fun of us.

So the Walton family almost http://www.shopmoncleroutlet.com instinctively put a pretty tight lid on Louis Vuitton Outlet Handbags personal publicity for any of us, althoughwe http://www.thebagsstyle.com kept living out in the open and cheap nba jerseys going around visiting folks in the stores barbour.com all the time. Fortunately, here inBentonville, our michael kors watches for men friends and neighbors protected us from a Michael Kors Black Friday lot of these scavengers. But I did christian louboutin outlet online getambushed by the "Lifestyles of the Rich Michael Kors clearance sale and Famous" guy at a tennis tournament http://www.katespadeplaza.com I was playing in, andHelen talked to Kate Spade Outlet one of the women's magazines for an http://www.guccibags-handbags.org article. The media usually portrayed me as kate spade outlet a reallycheap, eccentric recluse, sort of a michael kors outlet online hillbilly who more or less slept with Louis Vuitton Outlet Store his dogs in spite of having billionsof true religion factory outlet dollars stashed away in a cave. Then Kate Spade Handbags when the stock market crashed in 1987, Michael Kors outlet online and Wal-Mart stockdropped along with everything else Louis Vuitton Outlet in the market, everybody wrote that I'd cheap nike shoes lost a half billion dollars.

When they asked Coach Outlet Online me about it I said, "It's only official true religion paper," and they had a good time Michael Kors purses with that.

But now I'd like to explain Michael Kors shoes outlet some of my attitudes about moneyup to michael kors hamiton a point. After that, our financeslikethose of kate spade bags any other normal-thinking American familyare nobody's business LV outlet but our own. No questionabout it, a http://www.2014michaelkorswatches.com lot of my attitude toward money stems new balance sale from growing up during a pretty hardscrabble High Heel Shoes time inour country's history: the Great Depression. Michael Kors outlet purses And this heartland area we come from Christian Louboutin online store out hereMissouri,Oklahoma,Kansas,Arkansaswas hard hit during that Dust michael kors outlet online sale store Bowl era. I was born in Kingfisher,Oklahoma, true religion jeans in 1918 and lived there until I Coach Outlet Store Online was about five, but my earliest memories free run 2 are ofSpringfield,Missouri,where I started school, and later Louis Vuitton Outlet of the littleMissouritown ofMarshall. After that, we Christian Louboutin Outlet Store lived in Shelbina,Missouri, where I started high michael kors outlet online sale school, and still later Columbia, where I michael kors watches on sale finished high school and went onto college.

My owner michael kors black Friday dad, Thomas Gibson Walton, was an awfully Louis Vuitton Outlet Online hard worker who got up early, put Nike LunarGlipse in long hours, andwas honest. Completely, totally michael kors outlet honest, remembered by most people for his michael kors outlet online sale integrity. He was also a bitof a Kate Spade character, who loved to trade, loved to new balance outlet online make a deal for just about anything: Kate Spade Outlet horses, mules, cattle,houses, farms, cars. Anything. Once wholesale nba jerseys he traded our farm in Kingfisher for Christian Louboutin Outlet another one, near Omega,Oklahoma. Another time, he michael kors traded his wristwatch for a hog, so christian louboutin outlet we'd have meat on the table. And http://www.louisvuittonstore2013.com hewas the best negotiator I ever ran michael kors shoulder bags into. My dad had that unusual instinct christian louboutin outlet to know how far he could gowith michal kors purse outlet someoneand did it in a way that nike air max he and the guy always parted friendsbut gucci handbags he would embarrass mewith some of the Cheap Louis Vuitton offers he would make, they were so http://www.cheapmichaelkorshandbagshotsales.com low. That's one reason I'm probably not kate spade the bestnegotiator in the world; I lack Michael Kors outlet the ability to squeeze that last dollar. Michael Kors outlet stores Fortunately, my brother Bud, who hasbeen my Kate Spade Bags partner from early on, inherited my dad's Michael Kors outlet handbags ability to negotiate.

Dad never had the kind Michael Kors handbags outlet online store of ambition or confidence to build much ttp://www.katespadeoutletinc.com of a business on his own, and mk bags outlet he didn'tbelieve in taking on debt. When Kate Spade New York I was growing up, he had all Louis Vuitton Handbags sorts of jobs. He was a banker High Heels and afarmer and a farm-loan appraiser, and kate spade an agent for both insurance and real Coach Outlet estate. For a few months,early in the Michael Kors outlet store Depression, he was out of work altogether, Michael Kors outlet online sale and eventually he went to work for Moncler Outlet Online his brother'sWalton Mortgage Co., which was an http://www.michaelkorshandbagsoutlet-store.com agent for Metropolitan Life Insurance. Dad became Moncler Coats the guy whohad to service Metropolitan's old Michael Kors handbags outlet farm loans, most of which were in michael kors rose gold watch default. In twenty-nine and thirty andthirty-one, he Moncler Coats had to repossess hundreds of farms from Kate Spade Online Sale wonderful people whose families had owned theland christian louboutin outlet online forever. I traveled with him some, and http://www.usalouisvuittonoutlet-store.com it was tragic, and really hard on wholesales michael kors bags online Dad too but he tried to do Kate Spade Bags itin a way that left those farmers Louis Vuitton Sunglasses with as much of their self-respect as Michael Kors online outlet he could. All of this must have cheap Michael Kors bags online madean impression on me as a kid, Michael Kors Handbags sale although I don't ever remember saying anything nike free run to myself like "I'll never bepoor."We never Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet thought of ourselves as poor, although we gucci purses certainly didn't have much of what you'd Moncler Coats calldisposable income lying around, and we did truereligion.com what we could to raise a dollar Michael Kors outlet stores here and there. For example,my mother, Nan cheap Michael Kors outlet Walton, got the idea during the Depression katespade.com to start a little milk business. I'd http://www.louisvuittonoutletyears.com get up earlyin the morning and milk Michael Kors handbags on sale the cows, Mother would prepare and bottle christian louboutin shoes the milk, and I'd deliver it afterfootball Michael Kors watches practice in the afternoons. We had ten new balance shoes outlet or twelve customers, who paid ten cents michael kors handbags outlet store a gallon. Best ofall, Mother would skim kate spade online sale the cream and make ice cream, and http://www.michaelkorshamiltontote.us it's a wonder I wasn't known as Louis Vuitton Handbags Fat SamWalton in those days from all Michael Kors purse outlet the ice cream I ate.

I also started Michael Kors outlet clearance selling magazine subscriptions, probably as young as Michael Kors gold purse seven or eight years old, and I Michael Kors watches for men hadpaper routes from the seventh grade all michael kors tote the way through college. I raised and Michael Kors outlet online sale sold rabbits and pigeonstoo, nothing really unusual Louis vuitton outlet for country boys of that era.

I learned Louis Vuitton from a very early age that it Louis Vuitton Handbags outlet was important for us kids to help http://www.themercyseller.com provide for the home, to becontributors rather Louis Vuitton Handbags than just takers. In the process, of cheap new balance course, we learned how much hard work Nike Outlet Online it took toget your hands on a louis vuitton handbags dollar, and that when you did it cheap Michael Kors bags on sale was worth something. One thing my mother louis vuitton and dadshared completely was their approach to Michael Kors handbags outlet clearance money: they just didn't spend it.

BUD WALTON:

"People http://www.michaelkorshoesoutletonline.com can't understand why we're still so conservative. nba jerseys online sale They make a big deal about Sam gucci bags being abillionaire and driving an old pickup michael kors hamilton satchel truck or buying his clothes at Wal-Mart Moncler Coats or refusing to fly first class.

"It's just http://www.moncleroutletonlineinc.com the way we were brought up.

"When a Louis Vuitton Sale penny is lying out there on the Michael Kors outlet online store street, how many people would go out cheap michael kors handbags there and pick it up I'llbet I http://www.guccibags-handbags.org would. And I know Sam would."STEPHEN PUMPHREY, http://www.louisvuittonsunglassess.net PHOTOGRAPHER:

"Once I was setting up to photograph michael kors handbags wholesale Sam out on the tarmac of some High Heel Shoes little airport inMissouri. He wasover filing a http://www.moncleroutletonlineinc.com flight plan, and I threw a nickel Michael Kors satchel bag down on the pavementtrying to be cuteand Michael Kors handbags outlet sale said to myassistant: 'Lets see if he Michael Kors outlet online sale picks it up.' Planes are landing and taking off, and Sam comes walking over in abig hurry, a little put out that he has to pose for another picture. 'Okay,' he says, 'where do you want meto standon that nickel'"By the time I got out in the world ready to make something of myself, I already had a strongly ingrainedrespect for the value of a dollar. But my knowledge about money and finances probably wasn't all thatsophisticated in spite of the business degree I had. Then I got to know Helen's family, and listening to herfather, L. S. Robson, was an education in itself. He influenced me a great deal. He was a great salesman,one of the most persuasive individuals I have ever met. And I am sure his success as a trader and Michael Kors handbags outlet stores abusinessman, his knowledge of finance and the law, and his philosophy had a big effect on me. Mycompetitive nature was such that I wholesales michael kors bags online saw his success and admired it. I http://www.cheaplouisvuitton-bagso.net didn't envy it. I admired it. I gucci outlet said tomyself: maybe I will be as Christian Louboutin shoes successful as he is someday.

The Robsons were http://www.katespadeoutletst.com very smart about the way they handled new balance factory outlet their finances: Helen's father organized hisranch and barbour outlet store family businesses as a partnership, and Helen michael kors outlet online sale and her brothers were all partners. They true religion outlet store all tookturns doing the ranch books and kate spade store online things like that. Helen has a B.S. Michael Kors store degree in finance, which back then wasreally gucci purses unusual for a woman. Anyway, Mr. Robson Louis Vuitton advised us to do the same thing michael kors sunglasses purse with our family, andwe did, way back Kate Spade Outlet Online in 1953. What little we had at kate spade new york the time, we put into a partnership Louis Vuitton purses with our kids, whichwas later incorporated into Coach Outlet Online Walton Enterprises.

When I was growing up, he louis vuitton stores had all sorts of jobs. He was a banker and afarmer and a farm-loan appraiser, and an agent for both michael kors satchel bags outlets insurance and real estate. For a few months,early in the Depression, he was out of work altogether, and eventually he Louis Vuitton Store went to work for his brother'sWalton Mortgage Co., which was an agent for Metropolitan Life Insurance. Dad became the guy Louis Vuitton bags whohad to service Metropolitan's old farm loans, most of which were in default. In twenty-nine and thirty andthirty-one, he had Michael Kors bags wholesale to repossess hundreds of farms from wonderful people whose families had owned theland forever. I traveled with him some, and Michael Kors outlet clearance it was tragic, and really hard on Dad too but he tried to do itin a way that left those http://www.louisvuitton-lv.us.com farmers with as much of their self-respect as he could. All of this must have madean impression on me as Louis Vuitton wallets a kid, although I don't ever remember saying anything to myself like "I'll never bepoor."We never thought of ourselves as prada online outlet poor, although we certainly didn't have much of what you'd calldisposable income lying around, and we did what we could Louis Vuitton to raise a dollar here and there. For example,my mother, Nan Walton, got the idea during the Depression to start Louis Vuitton Outlet a little milk business. I'd get up earlyin the morning and milk the cows, Mother would prepare and bottle the Michael Kors online outlet milk, and I'd deliver it afterfootball practice in the afternoons. We had ten or twelve customers, who paid ten cents michael kors handbags a gallon. Best ofall, Mother would skim the cream and make ice cream, and it's a wonder I wasn't known wholesales michael kors bags online as Fat SamWalton in those days from all the ice cream I ate.

I also started selling magazine subscriptions, probably as Louis Vuitton Sunglasses young as seven or eight years old, and I hadpaper routes from the seventh grade all the way through college. http://www.louisvuitton-lvpurses.com I raised and sold rabbits and pigeonstoo, nothing really unusual for country boys of that era.

I learned from a very Louis Vuitton Handbags early age that it was important for us kids to help provide for the home, to becontributors rather than just Louis Vuitton takers. In the process, of course, we learned how much hard work it took toget your hands on a dollar, Louis Vuitton Outlet Handbags and that when you did it was worth something. One thing my mother and dadshared completely was their approach to Louis Vuitton Outlet stores money: they just didn't spend it.

BUD WALTON:

"People can't understand why we're still so conservative. They make a big deal about Sam being abillionaire and driving an old pickup truck or buying his clothes at Wal-Mart or refusing to fly first class.

"It's just the way we were brought up.

"When a penny is lying out there on the street, how many people would go out there and pick it up I'llbet I would. And I know Sam would."STEPHEN PUMPHREY, PHOTOGRAPHER:

"Once I was setting up to new Louis Vuitton photograph Sam out on the tarmac of some little airport inMissouri. He wasover filing a flight plan, and I threw a nickel down on the pavementtrying to be cuteand said to myassistant: 'Lets see if he picks it up.' Planes Michael Kors purse outlet are landing and taking off, and Sam comes walking over in abig hurry, a little put out that he has mk bags outlet to pose for another picture. 'Okay,' he says, 'where do you want meto standon that nickel'"By the time I got cheap Michael Kors bags out in the world ready to make something of myself, I already had a strongly ingrainedrespect for the value of louis vuitton bags a dollar. But my knowledge about money and finances probably wasn't all thatsophisticated in spite of the business degree I Michael Kors bags on sale had. Then I got to know Helen's family, and listening to herfather, L. S. Robson, was an education in itself. Michael Kors Purses He influenced me a great deal. He was a great salesman,one of the most persuasive individuals I have ever met. new balance factory store And I am sure his success as a trader and abusinessman, his knowledge of finance and the law, and his LV Purses philosophy had a big effect on me. Mycompetitive nature was such that I saw his success and admired it. I Michael Kors handbags sale didn't envy it. I admired it. I said tomyself: maybe I will be as successful as he is someday.

The Robsons Cheap Louis Vuitton were very smart about the way they handled their finances: Helen's father organized hisranch and family businesses as a partnership, http://www.louisvuittonoutletsyear.com and Helen and her brothers were all partners. They all tookturns doing the ranch books and things like that. Helen michael kors outlet online has a B.S. degree in finance, which back then wasreally unusual for a woman. Anyway, Mr. Robson advised us to Michael Kors purses do the same thing with our family, andwe did, way back in 1953. What little we had at the time, http://www.michaelkors-crossbodybag.com we put into a partnership with our kids, whichwas later incorporated into Walton Enterprises.

"I was awake one night and turned on my radio, and I heard them announce that Sam Walton was therichest man inAmerica. And I thought, 'Sam Walton. Why, he was in my class.' And I http://www.prada-outlet-onlines.net got so excited."HELEN WILLIAMS,former history and speech teacher atHickmanHigh SchoolinColumbia,MissouriSuccess has always had its price, I guess, and I learned Louis Vuitton Bags 2015 that lesson the hard way in October of 1985whenForbes magazine named me the so-called "richest man inAmerica." Well, it wasn't cheap Michael Kors bags usa too hard toimagine all those newspaper and TV folks up inNew Yorksaying "Who" and "He lives where" The nextthing we Michael Kors outlet clearance knew, reporters and photographers started flocking down here to Bentonville, I guess to takepictures of me diving into some swimming Louis Vuitton Outlet Handbags pool full of money they imagined I had, or to watch me light bigfat cigars with $100 bills while the Louis Vuitton Sale hootchy-kootchy girls danced by the lake.

I really don't know what they thought, but I wasn't about to cooperate with them. Louis Vuitton Outlet Online So they found out allthese exciting things about me, like: I drove an old pickup truck with cages in the Michael Kors Purses back for my bird dogs,or I wore a Wal-Mart ball cap, or I got my hair cut at the barbershop Louis Vuitton Outlet just off the townsquaresomebody with a telephoto lens even snuck up and took a picture of me in the barber Louis Vuitton Bags chair, andit was in newspapers all over the country. Then folks we'd never heard of started calling us and writing Louis Vuitton usfrom all over the world and coming here to ask us for money. Many of them represented worthy causes,I'm sure, Michael Kors outlet stores but we also heard from just about every harebrained, cockamamy schemer in the world. Iremember one letter from a woman Louis vuitton outlet who just came right out and said, "I've never been able to afford the$100,000 house I've always wanted. Will you Louis Vuitton Outlet Online give me the money" They still do it to this day, write orcall asking for a new car, or money michael kors crossbody bags to go on a vacation, or to get some dental workwhatever comesinto their minds.

Now, I'm a friendly fellow by natureI prada online outlet always speak to folks in the street and suchand my wife Helen isas genial and outgoing as she can be, http://www.michalkorspurseoutlets.com involved in all sorts of community activities, and we've always livedvery much out in the open. But we really thought cheaps michael kors wallets there for a while that this "richest" thing was going toruin our whole lifestyle. We've always tried to do our louis vuitton store 2015 share, but all of a sudden everybody expected us topay their way too. And nosy people from the media would Louis Vuitton purses call our house at all hours and get downrightrude when we'd tell them no, you can't bring a TV crew Louis Vuitton bags out to the house, or no, we don't want yourmagazine to spend a week photographing the lives of the Waltons, find cheap michael kors bag or no, I don't have time to share mylife story with you. It made me mad, anyway, that all they cheap louis vuitton bags wanted to talk about was my family's personalfinances. They weren't even interested in Wal-Mart, which was probably one of the Louis Vuitton Outlet Store best business storiesgoing on anywhere in the world at the time, but it never even occurred to them to ask Michael Kors Outlet about thecompany. The impression I got is that most media folksand some Wall Street types tooeither thoughtwe were just a Michael Kors crossbody bunch of bumpkins selling socks off the back of a truck, or that we were some kind offast buck artists http://www.louisvuittonoutletsyear.com or stock scammers. And when they did write about the company they either got it wrongor just made fun of Louis Vuitton Outlet Handbags us.

So the Walton family almost instinctively put a pretty tight lid on personal publicity for any of us, althoughwe kept louis vuitton stores living out in the open and going around visiting folks in the stores all the time. Fortunately, here inBentonville, our louis vuitton luggage friends and neighbors protected us from a lot of these scavengers. But I did getambushed by the "Lifestyles of the Michael Kors handbags outlet online store Rich and Famous" guy at a tennis tournament I was playing in, andHelen talked to one of the women's magazines http://www.cheaplvbags-top.net for an article. The media usually portrayed me as a reallycheap, eccentric recluse, sort of a hillbilly who more or Michael Kors outlet less slept with his dogs in spite of having billionsof dollars stashed away in a cave. Then when the stock Michael Kors handbags outlet stores market crashed in 1987, and Wal-Mart stockdropped along with everything else in the market, everybody wrote that I'd lost a Michael Kors store half billion dollars.

When they asked me about it I said, "It's only paper," and they had a good time with http://www.louisvuitton-bags-2015.com that.

But now I'd like to explain some of my attitudes about moneyup to a point. After that, our financeslikethose of Michael Kors handbags on sale any other normal-thinking American familyare nobody's business but our own. No questionabout it, a lot of my attitude toward money michael kors outlet stems from growing up during a pretty hardscrabble time inour country's history: the Great Depression. And this heartland area we prada outlet online come from out hereMissouri,Oklahoma,Kansas,Arkansaswas hard hit during that Dust Bowl era. I was born in Kingfisher,Oklahoma, in 1918 and lived Michael Kors Outlet Handbags there until I was about five, but my earliest memories are ofSpringfield,Missouri,where I started school, and later of the littleMissouritown michael kors outlet online ofMarshall. After that, we lived in Shelbina,Missouri, where I started high school, and still later Columbia, where I finished high Louis Vuitton Handbags outlet school and went onto college.

My dad, Thomas Gibson Walton, was an awfully hard worker who got up early, put in Michael Kors crossbody handbags long hours, andwas honest. Completely, totally honest, remembered by most people for his integrity. He was also a bitof a Michael Kors wallets on sale character, who loved to trade, loved to make a deal for just about anything: horses, mules, cattle,houses, farms, cars. Anything. chanel bags Once he traded our farm in Kingfisher for another one, near Omega,Oklahoma. Another time, he traded his wristwatch for a Louis Vuitton Outlet Stores hog, so we'd have meat on the table. And hewas the best negotiator I ever ran into. My dad had http://www.louisvuitton-lv.us.com that unusual instinct to know how far he could gowith someoneand did it in a way that he and the http://www.michaelkorsoutletonlinestoresale-us.com guy always parted friendsbut he would embarrass mewith some of the offers he would make, they were so low. That's Michael Kors online outlet one reason I'm probably not the bestnegotiator in the world; I lack the ability to squeeze that last dollar. Fortunately, chanel outlet online my brother Bud, who hasbeen my partner from early on, inherited my dad's ability to negotiate.

Dad never had the kind mk bags outlet of ambition or confidence to build much of a business on his own, and he didn'tbelieve in taking on debt. Louis Vuitton outlet online When I was growing up, he had all sorts of jobs. He was a banker and afarmer and a farm-loan Louis Vuitton appraiser, and an agent for both insurance and real estate. For a few months,early in the Depression, he was out Louis Vuitton Purses of work altogether, and eventually he went to work for his brother'sWalton Mortgage Co., which was an agent for Metropolitan Louis Vuitton Life Insurance. Dad became the guy whohad to service Metropolitan's old farm loans, most of which were in default. In michael kors satchel bags outlets twenty-nine and thirty andthirty-one, he had to repossess hundreds of farms from wonderful people whose families had owned theland forever. Louis Vuitton I traveled with him some, and it was tragic, and really hard on Dad too but he tried to do new balance itin a way that left those farmers with as much of their self-respect as he could. All of this must Louis Vuitton Outlet stores have madean impression on me as a kid, although I don't ever remember saying anything to myself like "I'll never Louis Vuitton Sunglasses bepoor."We never thought of ourselves as poor, although we certainly didn't have much of what you'd calldisposable income lying around, wholesales michael kors bags online and we did what we could to raise a dollar here and there. For example,my mother, Nan Walton, got the gucci bags idea during the Depression to start a little milk business.

We had ten or http://www.louisvuitton-sunglassess.com twelve customers, who paid ten cents a gallon. Best ofall, Mother would skim the cream and make ice cream, and wholesale michael kors it's a wonder I wasn't known as Fat SamWalton in those days from all the ice cream I ate.
