spring traditions: april: Martinia - april 14

      This tradition is connected to the wolves. People kind of "bind" the wolves' mouths so that they don't eat the cattle, they also put together a pile of combs for that same purpose. They do that with their eyes shut, so that the wolves become blind and don't see the sheep when they pass by them.

     Church Holiday: St. Martin- Roman Pope. Imprisoned in Herson, where he dies in 637.
