The Sustainable Environmental and Economic Partnership, s.r.o (SEEP) is a Slovak-American partnership established to support a sustainable rural economy through cultural preservation and environmental restoration. SEEP is licensed under Slovak law to provide a number of services from environmental to genealogy research, exports, travel and tourism.
Some Slovak New Year's traditions are associated with fortunetelling. One is to cut an apple in half. If it reveals a star (without worm damage) a healthy year is ahead. Another is for an unwed woman to throw a shoe over their shoulder with her back toward a door. If the heel points toward the door, she will remain single in the coming year and if the toe points towards the door, she will marry.
