Born today, waiting for the wealth

January 14 2008

Today in the national calendar Vasil-day pig feast. Circumcision of the Lord.

On this day the Orthodox Church reveres St. Basil the Great, Archbishop of Caesarea in Cappadocia. St. Basil's Day coincided with the celebration of New Year, old style. It is also called "prednovogodem 'or' generous tonight." On this day, sat apart a pig's head - a symbol of fertility and prosperity.

The people believed that on the eve of Vasili witches steal the month from the sky. Take notice: zvezdistaya night Vasil-day promises a rich harvest of berries. Cause-and accepted among growers adhering to their ancestral customs, to shake that morning fruit trees. Snowstorm in Vasiliev evening promises a great harvest the nuts. If there is fog - to harvest.

People say: Make a girl under the Red Basil - all come true, but that will come true - not minuetsya! Vasileva mess guessing for the entire year. If you mess got out of the nest - expect trouble around the house. If lucky omens - porridge eaten whole, if the bad - thrown into the hole along with the pot.

On this day, baked cookies, resembling cows, sheep and poultry. Born on this day waiting for wealth. They should be jasper, reports Pravda.Ru .
