March 28 — Nikander Day. Go to the forest! Chat with his spirits…

CrimeaPRESS reports:

March 28, our ancestors called «forest care». The day was devoted to the forest, going there to bow to the local spirits.

Connoisseurs note that the Russian people from ancient times treated the forest in a special way, because it was he who gave the person the same household utensils or inventory — everything was made of wood. In addition, the forest often performed a protective function, since it is very difficult to pass through a dense thicket. On this day, healers collected herbs and medicinal plants, spoke them, prepared various potions. It was supposed to be on March 28 to remove damage, treat head diseases. It was also a great time for making amulets.

In the church, on March 28, the memory of the holy martyr Nikander is venerated. He, so the legend says, while working as a doctor, did a large number of good deeds towards Christians during the organized persecution of them. Nicander visited prisoners in prisons, consoled the martyrs, buried those who were executed. Once, when Nicander was trying to bury Christians torn to pieces by lions, he was seen by the imperial guards, who seized Nicander, and soon he was executed.
