Jurgis and Ona are in love and desire to make plans for their wedding. Ona suggests to Teta Elzbieta that they do without the veselija, but this keeps her “lying awake all night.” They decide to wait in order to save up money for a proper wedding feast. They know it will take four to five months to raise such a sum. This sets us up for the realities of their life that will make their dreams impossible.
