Lukin’s Day: which is strictly prohibited May 5, 2021 This Wednesday Orthodox believers remember the holy Apostle Luke, the author of one of the Gospels. In Russia, many signs were associated with this day.

It was believed that unclean forces let fog on the fields on Luka, so on May 5 they tried not to go to the forest. Women were especially careful: it was believed that if a woman fell into the fog on that day, the witches would immediately throw their child into her womb.

A bad omen is to bake pancakes on Luka, otherwise scandals and quarrels will settle in the family for a long time. It was forbidden to scatter things on this day: the lost can disappear forever, they said among the people.

You cannot take anything out of the house and give things to strangers if there is a child in the house – along with the objects, you can give the child’s happiness.

In Russia, since May 5, it has been customary to plant onions in vegetable gardens and be sure to eat at least a couple of rings raw – this will bring good health, they say.

Name days are celebrated on May 5 Vitaly, Vsevolod, Gabriel, Clement, Luke and Fedor.
