December 4th

Celebrating St Barbara’s Day

St Barbara was the daughter of a king in Turkey. She became a martyr when she was locked in a tower by her father, then tortured and killed for her faith in Christianity.

During her incarceration she kept a cherry branch alive by sharing her drinking water with it. She was consoled by the blossoms that appeared just before her execution.

Today, on December 4th, St Barbaras Day,  people still put a cherry branch (or another flowering branch) in a vase with water. If the blooms appear right on December 25th it brings good fortune for the year.

Let us try this – with "ordered water"  (Put the vase filled with water onto a Harmony Evolution for a few minutes)! If the blooms appear right on December 25th, it will be a splendid 2019. :-)
