Praesentatio Domini

Yesterday we celebrated one of 12 main Orthodoxal Holidays. Praesentatio Domini

On this day the parents of Jesus brought him to the Temple to fulfil the law of Moses on the 40-th day of his birth. At the Temple he was met by Simeon the God Receiver.

In Russian traditions this holiday is also considered as the day when winter meets spring. And the weather on this day will show what the spring is going to be. This year the weather was unusually warm with no rain and snow.

Thus we are waiting for warm spring to come soon 🙂
