May 26 is the day of Lukerya Komarnitsa. Do not try to kill a mosquito!

CrimeaPRESS reports:

As early as May 26, the people called: Lukeria, Grechishnitsa, Lukoshnitsa, Komarnitsa, Lushka. They collected medicinal herbs and worked in the field.

The main sign of these days is that mosquitoes appeared. Our ancestors believed that the wind blows insects to the south in the fall, into the heat, and in the spring they return again. They said that if you kill at least one mosquito before the twentieth of June, then a dozen more will fly to replace it. So — keep slippers in your hands!

On May 26, the church honors the memory of Glykeria of Novgorod, a righteous maiden, the daughter of a city headman, who died young. The Virgin Lukerya began to be revered only in the middle of the 16th century, when miraculous healings of people began to occur near her imperishable body.

Signs of the day — most … again … are associated with mosquitoes:

  • If mosquitoes appeared on Lukerya, good weather will set in.
  • A lot of mosquitoes — there will be a lot of mushrooms.
  • Swallows and swifts fly across the sky in large numbers on May 26 — to warm days.
  • If mosquitoes appeared on Lukerya, berries will be born.
  • Swallows and swifts flew away — to warm weather.
  • Large mosquitoes appeared — the year will be very successful.
  • Many mosquitoes on May 26 — the day will be sunny.
Birthdays are celebrated today: Alexander, George, Glykeria, Efim, Irina, Makar, Vasily, Sergey, Yuri.
