Pereima - the custom of blocking the way for young people when traveling to the church for a wedding or to the groom’s house and getting a ransom from them. Village boys or children block the road with a rope, sometimes they put a table with bread and an icon in the middle of the road. Young kiss the icon and bread and give children. In Ukrainian songs about the reclaim, the lads are reproached for the fact that they released a damsel for a quart of vodka. The custom of heights is noted in many countries - in Russia , Bulgaria , the Czech Republic , Germany , France , Italy ( Italian: serraglio ), India  .
The word "pereima" originally meant any partition, a dam in a river, a brook.
