Irina Macedonian is known that she is the first woman honored among the martyrs. The girl was born in the family of a pagan ruler LNA. Thanks to her mentor Apelado, she converted to Christianity.

However, despite all the torture and torment of Irina, she lived a long life and learned to heal people from various diseases.
In this day people continued to engage in seedlings of vegetables. It usually takes only women and so no one could see them. It was believed that such people will perform the work – the plants sprout, but the fruit will bring. Was the rite: the mistress of the plants first sprout of cabbage. Covers it with a pot, and the pot covered with white cloth. Then, the edges are seated nettle, which should scare all evil spirits and pests. At the same time said: “Nettle — hell cabbage — us!”.
