January 25 — Tatyana's day

CrimeaPRESS reports:

Tatyana’s day is a double holiday. Firstly, it is celebrated by Christians, paying tribute to the memory of Tatyana Kreshchenskaya or Roman. The legend says: the girl, born into a wealthy family, strongly believed in God and took a vow of chastity. For this she was rewarded with the title of deaconess. When the persecution of Christians reached its peak, the pagans seized her — they wanted to convert her to their religion. However, Tatyana Rimskaya read a prayer that caused an earthquake that destroyed the pagan temple. After that, the girl’s torment began — she was crippled, thrown into prison, locked in the same cell with a lion … As a result, Tatyana and her father were executed by cutting off their heads. For her torment, she was canonized as a saint.

During the time of Empress Elizabeth Petrovna, Tatyana’s day firmly established itself in the secular calendar. Became iconic for students. After all, it was January that the autocrat issued a decree according to which Moscow State University was opened in the capital of Russia.

  • Also in January, students call the ball. They go out onto the balcony or look out the window, shake the record book and shout: “Shara, come!” They say that if someone shouts in response — “Already on the way”, then everything will be fine in the academic life of the owner of the grade book.
  • Another student sign for the future — on the last page of the student’s record book, you need to draw a house with a chimney. From which it MUST be smoke. And the longer its stream is, the easier it will be to study this year.
