Is celebrated between Orthodox Christmas (January 7) and the Epiphany (January 19th)
Epiphany in Russia
January 19, the last day of Svyatki, marks Epiphany. On this day, brave or very devout individuals take a dip in the icy waters of rivers and lakes. Epiphany, marking the baptism of Jesus, is said to imbue water with special powers that will protect those who bathe in it on this day.
The day before Easter all churches hold night services and organize religious processions around churches. By that time, kulich, the traditional holiday baking symbolizing the body of Christ, had been already baked and Easter eggs painted.
The morning starts from visiting neighbors and giving away Easter eggs. The common phrase you can hear on that day is: "Khristos voskres!" (Christ is risen!), which is to be followed by "Voistinu voskres" (Truly He is risen! This traditional greeting followed by hugging and triple kissing is called "kiss of peace". Christian Easter feast lasts seven days and is called the Holy Week or Sedmitsa.
Before leaving for a long journey, travelers and all those who are seeing them off, must sit for a moment in silence before leaving the house. It is often conveniently written off as a time to sit and think of anything one may have forgotten.
Knocking on wood is practiced in Russia as in other countries. However Russians tend to add a symbolic three spits over one's left shoulder (or simply with the head turned to the left), and Russians will often knock three times as well. Traditionally one was spitting on the devil (who is always on the left).
Breaking a mirror is considered bad luck in Russia, as is looking at one's reflection in a broken mirror, but the effect is also more severe than 7 years of bad luck (as in American culture).
On examination day, it is bad luck to make your bed, wear anything new, or cut your fingernails
Birthday parties should be celebrated on or after one's birthday, not before. So when one's birthday falls during the week, it's best to celebrate the following weekend. And never give someone birthday wishes before their birthday.
Unmarried people should not sit at the corner of the table. Otherwise they will not marry. This mostly applies to girls, and often only young girls.
Things bought for a newborn baby (such as clothes, toys, furniture, etc.) should only be purchased after the baby is born.
A group of two or more people should not walk on different sides of a tree. They should all keep to one side or the other
Bread should only be cut with a knife, not with your hands. Otherwise, it is said, that your life will be broken. The opposite is held true by some people.
Two or more people should never use one towel at the same time to dry their hands or bodies, or it is said to bring conflict
Whistling in a house would bring misfortune to that household
Before one takes an exam, someone else would say, "ни пуха ни пера!" which roughly translates to "neither fur, nor feather!" which means good luck. To this, the one taking the exam would reply, "К чёрту!" which means, "Go to the Devil!" or "To the Devil!" which is a way of securing good luck.
Custom that are more often regarded as superstition
When you have alcohol, it must be drunk until it is gone.
It is not allowed to fill a glass being held in the air.
It is considered bad luck to make a toast with an empty glass. If done, the toaster must finish off the bottle of what he had last.
Traditions for the use of alcohol in Russia
Russian folk culture depicts the soul either as small and childlike, or having wings and flying. For forty days after a funeral, the soul of the deceased visits places it liked or places where it sinned to ask for forgiveness. Until the ninth day it is traditional to keep a piece of black bread on a shot of vodka by a photo of the deceased.
After forty days the deceased’s family sets a place for their loved one at dinner, inviting him or her join them for his or her own commemoration.
Father - 29 y.o.
Mother - 25 y.o.
In modern Russian families, parents do not participate in the selection of a mate for their children
