kadris are on the run…

on the saint catherine’s day
on the day, that marks the arrival of winter
on the day, that is the celebration for the women of culture

kadris are on the run…
dressed in clean and light colored clothing, as a reference to the becoming snow or as symbol of the milk (also 
associated with the cattle farming and women giving birth), which according to the legend was running from the veins of a saint instead of the blood, while she was being executed. or as the symbol of the virginal purity of the saint catherine’s mind.

there is a belief that if kadri freezes or there is snow or snow drifts behind the fences on saint catherine’s day – a good harvest can be expected in the becoming year. as well the weather should look alike on february the 2nd, candlemas day.
