In the folk calendar, the date March 10 was named Taras Kumashnik, Tarasius the Sleepless. The Orthodox Church on this day honors the memory of St. Tarasius, Patriarch of Constantinople.
From the life of Saint Tarasius it became known that he slept little, for which he was given the nickname Sleepless. On the day of veneration of the saint, there is a ban on daytime and evening sleep. A person who violates the ban will be attacked by kumokha (fever).
