As they write on calendar resources, it was customary in Russia to take care of domestic animals – many of them began to molt these days. They took Cattle out to the courtyard, cleaned it and scrubbed it, started talking from the evil eye.
The peasants said: “Do not be lazy at Skotnik – bow to the cattle.” There were many sayings about domestic living creatures: “To drive cattle – not to open mouth to walk”; “Cow in the yard – grub on the table”; “A pig is a piggy bank: you’ll take what you put in it.”
By the way, there were special subtleties of caring for pigs: “Hailing pigs by looking out the window will not get into the garden” .
We also observed signs for the weather. Frost on Venedikta foreshadowed the same weather for a whole week ahead.
On this day, people courted their pets, people took them to the courtyard, cleaned and scrubbed, started talking from the evil eye and spoilage. As we mentioned above, peasants always called animals “cattle”.
