September 10 is Anna and Savva Skirdnikov Day. Are you going to the forest? Take a pie for Leshy
On September 10, the church honors the memory of three saints at once: St. Moses Murin, St. Righteous Anna and St. Sava. The peasants had no time for holidays. Among the people, this day was one of the busiest: they completed field work, finished sowing winter wheat, and finished picking apples and plums.
Signs of the day:
- Warm and dry weather means late winter.
- Thunderstorms — for a warm autumn.
- By September 10, all the leaves had fallen from the birch and aspen — ready for a fruitful next year.
- A lot of acorns and nuts — for a rich harvest of winter crops.
- The leaves of birch trees are yellow — there are a lot of honey mushrooms in the forest.
- The south wind has blown — the year will end easily and carefree. The north wind brings with it illness and misfortune.
- On September 10, relatives of patients with alcoholism are supposed to pray to the Monk Moses Murin — for the speedy healing of the patient.
- If a trader collects spikelets in the field on this day and hides them in a secluded place, the trade will be successful and profitable.
- It’s better not to go to the forest today. And if you go, you need to be extremely careful: there is a great danger of getting lost. To prevent Leshy from misleading you, you need to take a pie for him and put it on a stump.
- Hanging winter clothes in a visible place means successful completion of field and garden work.
- Seeing deceased relatives in a dream means a happy family life.
- Meeting your mother-in-law means trouble.
- Anyone born on this day will grow up to be a proud and independent person.
