Leap year wedding

Oh, how super­sti­tious peo­ple become on the eve of the wed­ding, and even those who have nev­er twist­ed a black cat’s fig, are active­ly begin­ning to be inter­est­ed in all­signs. The super­sti­tion about a leap year is espe­cial­ly strong among the peo­ple — they say that it is absolute­ly impos­si­ble to play ain such a year, the fam­i­ly will be doomed to all sorts of mis­for­tunes. Is it real­ly pos­si­ble to get mar­ried in a leap year or is it not worth it to get mar­ried? Is there any evi­dence for this super­sti­tion?

Why is leap year bad?

To answer the ques­tion of whether it is pos­si­ble to have ain a leap year, you need to under­stand what is gen­er­al­ly wrong with hav­ing an extra day in a year? Tra­di­tion­al­ly, a leap year was con­sid­ered bad, this was due to the fact that Kasyan was the patron of such a year. This saint was con­sid­ered by the peo­ple to be a miser­ly, envi­ous, self­ish and unfriend­ly type who brings peo­ple noth­ing but mis­for­tune. And with such a patron, what good can you expect from the year? But sta­tis­tics do not con­firm this pop­u­lar opin­ion — mis­for­tunes occur not only in leap years.

There is also an opin­ion that more deaths alleged­ly occur in a leap year than in oth­er years that are not bur­dened with an “extra” day. But this super­sti­tion is also not con­firmed by sci­ence — a gen­er­al pesti­lence is not observed every leap year.

Why, then, is it said that there are more trou­bles in a leap year, were our ances­tors real­ly so nar­row-mind­ed? No, in some ways they are right, there real­ly is more than one day a year, which means that a lit­tle more events can hap­pen. And why did they rely on bad events? It’s just that peo­ple are more will­ing to believe bad things and lis­ten to tragedies more will­ing­ly than rejoice in hap­pi­ness.

Can you get married on a leap year?

Are there any signs asso­ci­at­ed with aand a leap year, is it pos­si­ble to get mar­ried this year? Super­sti­tious peo­ple will say that you can get mar­ried in any year, but it is bet­ter not in a leap year. Because a mar­riage con­clud­ed in such a year will cer­tain­ly fall apart. But this super­sti­tion is not some­thing that is not con­firmed by sci­ence, even folk tra­di­tion does not sup­port it.

Will you say that since ancient times, in leap years, match­mak­ers did not go to the house of the bride, because this year was con­sid­ered unlucky? Indeed, in a leap year, match­mak­ers were not to be found in the hous­es of brides, but not because of a bad year, but because match­mak­ers went to the grooms this year. Only in a leap year, the bride could send match­mak­ers to the groom, and he could not refuse her, with very rare excep­tions. So his­to­ry does not sup­port the super­sti­tion about unhap­py leap year mar­riages.

And how does the church look at this, maybe it cat­e­gor­i­cal­ly for­bids wed­dings on a leap year? And here is a mis­take — the Chris­t­ian church not only does not pro­hib­it get­ting mar­ried on a leap year, it also dis­hon­ors super­sti­tious peo­ple in every pos­si­ble way, equat­ing them with pagans. And indeed, if every­thing is the will of God, can the appear­ance of one addi­tion­al day in a year some­how affect a mar­ried cou­ple?leap year marriedIf you are des­tined to live hap­pi­ly and long, then it will be so and no years will become an obsta­cle, and if it is writ­ten to part with your fam­i­ly, then not a sin­gle prayer will help. And the church canons are proof of the nor­mal­i­ty of ain a leap year. They have days when the­cer­e­mo­ny is not per­formed — on the eve of major hol­i­days, Wednes­days, Fri­days and dur­ing many days of fast­ing. As you can see, noth­ing is said about the ban on church mar­riage in leap years.
