February 4 is Timofey's day. We are actively calling for spring
The main meaning of February 4 according to the folk calendar: Timofey’s day has left most of the winter behind — one can not only hope, but also actively call for spring. Meanwhile, the frosts in Rus’ today were especially severe and were called Timofeevsky. They said: “Timofeevsky’s severe frost froze my cheeks and nose,” “Timofeevsky’s blizzard will last for a long time.” It was believed that even birds did not fly out of their hiding places on February 4th.
Weather signs were watched especially closely today:
