Liseevden

14 June
(Lise’s Day)

According to popular belief Lise is the third brother hail man. He is lord of the black hail clouds in summer and snow storms in winter. Old people celebrate this day for the disease “liso” which makes people bald (lisi) – their hair and their beard and moustaches fall out. For that reason the young fellows on this they make “bald breads”, light candles, collect herbs, pour herbal teas on themselves and bathe in left water (at a left turn of the river) or the tea is poured through the left sleeve of a coat. They believe that their hair will become curly and will never fall out.
