Today, Christians celebrate the church holiday of January 29, Peter the Half-Ford, Adoration of the Chains of the Apostle Peter. On this day, the church honors one of the twelve apostles, Peter. In the sowing calendar, this date was called Petro-half-forage, since half of the reserves for the winter had already been exhausted by this day.
On this day, the peasants went around the silos and counted supplies. Among the people, Peter was the patron saint of cattle, so on January 27, animals were given something tasty and poured holy water. It was believed that this would help keep the livestock healthy.
Apostle Peter is prayed for fevers. This day is considered good for money investments and expensive purchases.
