Christians celebrate a church holiday on May 6 in honor of the Great Martyr and Saint George the Victorious. This day is considered the feast of the shepherds. On this date, cattle are driven out to pasture, and at this time people collect medicinal and fragrant herbs. Grateful people give gifts to shepherds today.
On May 6, the first sheep milking of the year is held. A glass of sheep’s milk today brings health, especially to children. On May 6, a ceremony is held for a good harvest: they bury the remains of a meal or a willow branch in the field.

You can’t get married on this day – such a marriage will be unhappy. If you made a promise today, you must definitely fulfill it. You can’t knit and pick up woolen products. You can’t swear and shout.

Mosquitoes fly in flocks – to warming. A calm day portends a good harvest. If it is cloudy in the morning, and the weather clears up in the evening, then there will be a good harvest of late crops. A south wind – by early summer.
