Christians celebrate today church holiday on January 29 Peter the Half-Ford, worshiping the chains of the Apostle Peter. On this day, the church honors one of the twelve apostles, Peter. In the sowing calendar, this date was called Petro-half-forage, since half of the stocks for the winter had already run out by this day.
On this day, the peasants went around the silos and counted supplies. Among the people, Peter was the patron saint of livestock, so on January 27, animals were given something tasty and poured holy water. It was believed that this would help keep the livestock healthy.
