Town and church holidays

On this day, the Orthodox Church honors the memory of Bishop Nikita. He was born in Kyiv, took monastic vows at a young age and went into seclusion. However, Nikita was tempted and could not resist: the devil forced him to refuse to read the Gospel.

Soon, he again used temperance and obedience, as a result of which he surpassed many of the virtues.

People called Nikita a guardian from fire, lightning and extreme heat of the sun. It is believed that at one time this saint could not only extinguish fire with his prayers, but also prevent drought.

Traditions and rituals

Our ancestors noticed that if the weather is good on this day, the fall will be good. People were especially afraid that evil spirits would ride the ridge on the roof – and the house would shake, and “the wind would come to the balcony.” Therefore, in Nikita, farmers are especially careful with their housing.


  • If the wood in the stove smokes and does not light properly, it means melting.
  • A strong draft from the fire foreshadowed frosty days.
  • Red fire promises cold, white – heat.
