April 6 — Day of Zakhar and Jacob, the eve of the feast of the Annunciation

CrimeaPRESS reports:

The Church venerates the memory of Saints Zakhar and Jacob. This day was also called Artemy and Zachary Postnik. At the same time, on April 6, the people were actively preparing for the feast of the Annunciation. They prayed in churches, visited prisons to distribute gifts to prisoners. The supper was obligatory.

And on this day, they arranged a big cleaning in the house. Be sure to fumigate winter clothes and household utensils with herbs. Juniper in particular. They believed that such a measure would protect against the evil eye. Evil spirits were also persecuted — old straw beds were burned. In addition, in order to get rid of the undead, they burned bonfires and went around the huts.

The weather signs for today are as follows:

  • Is it cold at night? Spring will be early.
  • The snow has melted by the Annunciation — this year there will be no more snowfalls.
  • but they won’t last long, and summer will come soon.
Zakhar, Artem, Peter, Stefan, Yakov.
