Vartolomeev den


11 June
(St. Bartholomew’s Day)

Vartolomeevden turns towards winter. That is why they get up very early, before dawn, so when the sun shows above the Sea of Azov it shines on them first and they will be healthy and strong until the next St. Bartholomew’s Day. People celebrate St. Bartholomew as the second of the hail men - the brothers German, Bartholomew, Lise and Vido.

People respect this day so no hail falls during the summer and there are no snow storms in winter.
