29 - SEKNOVENIE / EQUINOX (also known as Black Saint John)

8/29/2006 8:18:20 AM

People honor this day as the Equinox (meaning even day, i.e. the length of the day equals the length of the night). Water also gets colder and people should not bathe in waters in the open. That day, people do not eat black grapes or any fruit, begetable or drink of red color (associated with the blood of the saint), and to chase away sickness they eat white grapes and drink white wine. Aged people in the eastern regions tell the story that on Seknovenie Day all snakes, lizards and other reptiles return to their winter holes with the snake king. ?Wood-nymphs, fairies, dragons and dragonesses go to the end of the world?, and prepare for the winter. You must not start any new jobs on this day.
