The Days of the Female Blackbird!
|Snowfall in the Piazza San Marco|
According to tradition, if the weather is indeed cold, it is thought to be a good sign that the following spring will be radiant. If, however, the three days are warmer than usual, the arrival of spring will be delayed.
This year the forecast for the giorni della merla is that the weather will be very cold with the prospect of snow, even on low ground. I am now looking forward to a radiant spring.
