April 25 (April 12 Old Style)

Vasily Parijskij

On the day of St.
VASYL the spring land soars. And yet compared the land with an old woman and then slyly notes: "At Basil earth steamed, like an old woman in a bath. " If the sun is really the land soars, the year will be fertile.

On the day Basil will turn out the shafts, let down the sleigh on the loft.

Hunters argue that on this day bear comes out of their dens and hiding in the bushes. Meanwhile, on the hares said: "Hare, hare, jumped out of the bush", because "the hares running around during the day, and they are often heard (do not let, do not lie). "
