These days it was time for suffering. At the same time, as a rule, it rained with thunderstorms and lightning. Therefore, the people zealously prayed 24 July to the holy princess Olga, so that she would send good weather and help finish the harvest as quickly as possible. Among the people, this day is also called «Olga the hay worm».

Under Olga, the first Christian churches were built, preparations were made for the general baptism of Russia.
