On Wednesday, October 19, 2022, the Orthodox Church honors the memory of one of the 12 apostles – Thomas. The saint is also called “Unbelieving Thomas”, since it was he who at first did not believe in the resurrection of Christ, after which Jesus appeared to the apostle and showed his wounds. Thomas preached Christianity in Persia and India, died a martyr’s death at the hands of the pagans.

The people believed that Thomas was in no case impossible:

  • deceive, act to the detriment of others – liars and swindlers will face big troubles on this day
  • it is forbidden to spend money thoughtlessly – spenders can stay on beans
  • envy, quarrel, yell at someone – folk wisdom foreshadows health problems and failures on the personal front for those who like to scandal
  • overeat, arrange magnificent feasts – if a celebration falls on October 19, then you need to eat slowly

Our ancestors until October 19 finished work in the gardens and on the field. Therefore, on the day of Thomas, it was customary to count the harvest and prepare stocks for the winter – pickles, jams and compotes.

It was also previously believed that on this day, along with strong winds, snowstorms and unexpected snowfalls, evil spirits could come. To protect themselves from evil spirits, people performed a special ritual in a house with wasp knots.

On this day, we did not forget about other weather signs. So, flocks of crows and a bright red evening dawn foreshadowed bad weather in the near future. Snow on Foma meant that on November 22 the real winter would begin. If there is no wind on Foma, then soon there will be a cold snap. A foggy morning is a sign of a fine day. The morning sky is yellow – to the precipitation.
