July 9, 2022 Orthodox Holiday – Monk ‎David Strawberry…

Monk David Strawberry of Thessalonica

Monk David Strawberry of Thessalonica built a tiny home in the shade of a tree and lived in it for 70 years alone. Daily and never missed a day, prayer, strictly fasting, no matter how hot or how cold. God sent him a gift of healing for his devotion and he never turned away to those in need. He healed people from diseases and gave advice how to be healthy and live correctly. It is said that the monk could take burning coals in his hands without harm. He died around the year 540 AD…

Yes you read the name right and today is wild strawberry day in his remembrance…

What to do today?

1. Light a “white” candle in the house and life all the rest of the year is great…

2. Pregnant women put strawberries in their pockets so that childbirth will be easier…

3. Collect strawberries today. They have fantastic healing powers and make special jams for the winter health…

4. Do not get mad and fight with anyone this day. Very bad luck and do not turn down helping anyone…

5. Never (never, ever, like in, never) start a fire on this day. The fire has magical abilities and will surely cause you harm. The fires powers are more than what humans can handle…

If the July 9 is one of these types below…

  • Rainy day? It will rain until September and September itself will be very wet;
  • Clear day? 7 More weeks will be warm and sunny;
  • A lot of dew in the sunrise? Good crop of cucumbers;
  • If a rainbow shows and there is a lot of yellow in the rainbow? Good for fine weather.

Now you learned something new!
