The tone at the beginning of the story is festive and hopeful. A wedding ends at four o’clock in the afternoon, and Marija Berczynskas prepares for the festivities that follow. She is in charge of the entire wedding day activities, the veselija, and she uses her “broad shoulders” and “tremendous voice” to make sure everyone is in the correct place at the correct time.
