The month of April in the Romanian tradition

April was the second month of the Roman calendar, which began on March 1st. In the Julian and Gregorian calendars, it was the fourth month.

The old name of April, “prier”, is related to the weather, which is favorable for continuing the agricultural works begun in March.

When the weather was changing and it was too cold for seeding, April was named “bag on a stick” (Romanian: “traista-n bat”), which was associated to poverty.

According to the tradition, if the weather is beautiful in April, May will be cold and frosty. Instead, if April is cold, the weather will be beautiful in May.

The celebrations of this month are:

  • April 1st: The fools’ day (The tricks day)
  • April 11: Teeth day (St. Antipa)
  • April 22: St. George’s Eve (St. George of the cows)
  • April 23: St. George (Sangiorz)
  • April 25: St. Mark of the ox
