Savior of the Nut Feast Day celebrated today

29.08.2017

Today Christian Orthodox believers celebrate the third Savior Feast Day, the Nut Feast. The central dish on the believers' tables this day is a loaf of bread made form the grain of the new harvest. The Savior Feast Day following the Honey and Apple Feasts is also known as Savior of the Bread Feast Day. The people believe that if the nuts are plentiful then the next year's grain harvest will also be large. This festival is also called the Autumn and the Cold Savior Feast Day as with the end of August summer gives way to autumn. It is believed that if by the third Savior Feast Day the cranes start migrating then by the Virgin of Mercy festival (October 14) the frosts will have settled in.
