What a holiday today, May 27 / photo

On May 27, the Orthodox Church honors the memory of the Greek martyr Isidore of Chios. Our ancestors believed that on the day of Sidor, the real summer heat comes, and the frost finally recedes. On May 27, cucumbers were planted in open ground or as seedlings, and flax was sown.

Whether the night was warm enough for sowing cucumbers was judged by a wet rag hung outside overnight. If in the morning the rag remained completely wet or even more so it froze, then it is too early to plant seeds. If it is almost completely dry, then you can start sowing.

May 27 is considered a good date for the treatment of any stomach ailments, especially bloating and spasms. Medicinal herbs helped our ancestors in this, but in modern times it is better to consult a doctor.

May 27 is also suitable for milking cows and goats. Milk obtained on this day is considered particularly nutritious and does not spoil for a long time. Women washed their faces with homemade milk so that the skin was smooth and healthy.

People born on May 27 are very practical and down-to-earth. They clearly know what they want from life and do not live by fantasy. They are strict, but fair and responsible parents, as well as very reliable friends.
