Today, the church honors St. Ignatius, and the holiday is also known as Ignazhden. They are also called God-bearer, for that he has said that he himself bears God in his heart. He was killed by lions, by order of the Roman ruler Trajan. Maybe there is no other holiday connected with so much faith and ritual.
Ignazden is a traditional people's holiday. It is believed that from this day the New Year and the Christmas holidays begin. From that who comes first in the house on this day, we guess what is going to be next year. If the guest is good, then in the house throughout the year there will be prosperity and success in everything. All the rituals of Ignazhden set the prosperity of the new year for the farmers.
