Wednesday – gourmet.
“Not a life, but a carnival”, “What is in the oven, everyone on the table swords” – sayings about this day. In each family covered tables with all sorts of treats. On this day, the son-in-law came “to the mother-in-law at the pancakes.”
People’s signs for this day:
If Trifon is warm – a sign that the next 30 days will also be warm.
It began to snow – in the spring rains often will go.
Frosty day is a sign that the spring will be cold and late.
Windless and warm day – spring will also be warm and early.
