The month of October in the Romanian tradition

The month of October (called “Brumarel” in the folk tradition, as the hoarfrost begins now) announces the coming of the cold season and the works in that period consist especially in preparations for the winter.

If the leaves of the trees get yellow and fall early, this means that the next year will be rich. If it rains a lot in October, the month of December will be windy and if there's much hoarfrost or even snow, the weather in January will be fine.


The folk celebrations of this month are:

  • October 1st: St. Procoava
  • October 14th: St. Parascheve
  • October 18th: The “Lucin” (St. Luca)
  • October 25th : Sanmedru's Eve
  • October 26th: Sanmedru (St. Dimitry)
