Christians celebrate a church holiday on May 2 in honor of the monk John the Old Cave. On this day, it is customary to put on new clothes and go out in it. It is believed that whoever walks in a new one today will meet new happiness.
May 2 this year is a memorial day. On this date, you can visit the cemetery and read a prayer over the graves of relatives. It is worth putting things in order at the grave, planting fresh flowers, painting the fence. Then the souls of relatives in heaven will be calm.
