Today, the land comes the Evil

June 24 2008
08:07

According to popular calendar today - the day of Bartholomew. In celebration of summer solstice peasants on his own observations as it summed up the June weather, and awaited the appearance of evil forces.

Take notice: if the June nights were warmer then, perhaps, we can expect plenty of fruit. At the time of sunrise is stuffy - to bad weather. Fog in the morning creeps on the water - will be sunny. There were heavy dew - to fertility and frequent fogs promised to harvest mushrooms. The water is as clear as ever - to the rain.

In ancient times believed that on this day the earth "is coming off evil force, divides the inheritance among themselves: who eagerly fill the poisonous grass, someone in the wells of a baby crying, to whom the human race to scare." Strictly adhered to the custom not to tear the grass.

Also on June 24 celebrates the summer solstice (Midsummer's Eve celebration). Boys and girls circle dances, singing, having fun, swimming, jumping over bonfires, holding hands. If during a jump their hands will not disband - hence, the pair formed. Daredevils sought in night color fern. In ancient times, people believed that the finder fern flower would understand the language of animals, and he will gain the gift of clairvoyance. Name Day today, Bartholomew and Ephraim.
