Town and church holidays March 5

The Orthodox Church honors the memory of Bishop Reverend Leo of Katansky.

Saint Leo was a bishop in the city of Catani in Sicily. He is famous for his kindness and mercy, Christian love for the poor and travelers. He was also awarded the gift of healing.

In ancient times, this day was called Lev of Katansky, the Roller, Lev the Roller.

Traditions and rituals

The Sicilian saint became a Slavic skater – on this day they organized a trip from the mountains. It is believed that the more a person slides, the more happiness he will have in life.

They also believe that on this day one should ask for (or even secretly take) hot coal from the forge and take it to the farm. Coals are scattered on the edge of the field and ask for good luck in farming, favorable conditions for the growth and ripening of bread and a good harvest.

People believed that fire strengthened the union of the soil and the plow, warmed the future ladder, and gave fertility to the soil.

What not to do on March 5

You can not look at the sky in Lev Katansky. They say it’s a bad omen: anyone who sees a falling star will face a quick death – or the loss of one of their relatives.

You must protect yourself from diseases. It is believed that if anyone gets sick on this day, he will not recover for a long time or will die. They put a piece of bread under the patient’s arms at night, and in the morning they looked: if the bread was dry, the person was not destined to recover.

Also, children under the age of 7 should not have their hair cut.
