Epiphany is an Orthodox holiday, so making predictions on this day is strictly prohibited. Because according to religious canons, fortune telling is a terrible sin. But if you still want to find out the name of the future groom, many recommend doing this before swimming in the ice hole.

If you plan to dive into an ice pit, we do not recommend drinking water beforehand. First, this will not help you stay warm, and second, it conflicts with all religious rituals. You should also not smoke on this day.

You can’t be greedy
