Folk beliefs and signs:
► in the old days on Savva, the weather was known without leaving the hut: red the fire in the stove and the logs crackle, as if angry, the cold is fierce in the yard
► if the smoke is a column – to frost, the smoke is dragged – to bad weather, when the smoke beats to the ground – wait for snow
► a strong toboggan path is established from Savva and one cannot swear at the owner who has a horse
► on Savva’s day it’s a sin to work, you will offend the holy ascetic
► Savva salit the road, Savva lays, Savva sharpens nails, Savva will salt the way
