Christians celebrate a church holiday on November 25 in honor of Patriarch John the Merciful, as well as the Merciful Icon of the Mother of God. People called this day Ivan the Snowy. The days were already getting much shorter.

At that time, small children were often sick, but the peak of children’s colds fell on Ivan’s day. On this date, parents prayed to the Mother of God for the good health of their children.

Our ancestors noticed that if it is hot on this day, the winter will be cold. They took a big cart on the road to pick up more goods. They also bought firewood for the winter.
