Christians celebrate a church holiday on January 15 in honor of the Roman bishop and healer Sylvester I. Saint Sylvester is considered a powerful healer of any disease. Prayers for health can be read near his icon. In general, the date is considered good for any treatment and healing procedures.

In ancient times, this date was called Chicken Day. On January 15, it is customary to prepare various chicken dishes – soup, pancakes and chicken pie. Our ancestors slaughtered meat chickens on this day, and protected laying hens from evil forces and diseases.

On this day, our ancestors hung a “chicken god” in the chicken coop – a black stone the size of a goose egg with a hole in the middle. A thread was pulled through the hole in the middle and a pebble was hung from the ceiling of the chicken coop. It was believed that it would protect the birds from diseases and unclean spirits.
