Michael’s Day
St. Michael’s Day (29.09) was the end of summer and the beginning of winter. All work outside had to be finished. The help hired for summer left, and those working for the manor were released from service. St. George bound them up, St. Michael released them, was a popular saying. St. Michael’s Day was a holiday. On St. Michael’s Day a ram was slaughtered and beer made. In Kodavere, the meal of St. Michael’s Day was porridge. Fires were also made on St. Michael’s Day. Those making the St. Michael’s fire brought along Swedish turnips and potatoes and cooked them on a fire. It was mainly a fire for those having tended the cattle after all, the working year for these people ended on St. Michael’s Day. If the cattle did go out after St. Michael’s Day, then there were no bells and the person in charge also left his horn home. Wolves were on the loose again after St. Michael’s Day. After St. Michael’s Day, the young people in the villages started gathering again for joint working sessions, for dance parties, etc. An exception was the silent time of souls (3-9 weeks), which fell either between St. Michael’s Day and St. Martin’s Day, or between St. Martin’s Day and Christmas.
