On January 8, the Orthodox Church celebrates the Cathedral of the Most Holy Theotokos. The midwives were honored by the people on this day. The women took their children, gifts and went to visit the midwives to thank them, and the midwives treated the guests with porridge.
Since January 8, there are a lot of signs about the weather. For example, we watched birds. If magpies and crows are worried and chattering, frost will strike. Finches sing for the thaw.
Blizzard and frost promise a stormy summer. In the morning it is sunny and clear – for a good harvest. Snow sticks to the palms — to warming. The north wind will bring a cold snap. A red sunset also promises cold.
