Prayer Days, days on which processions are held to pray for a good harvest and to ward off thunderstorms; mainly on the 3 days before the Ascension of Christ (going back to the synod of Orleans of 511) and the name day of St. Mark (April 25). Even in pre-Christian times pictures of gods were carried through the fields, also to inspect the estate borders.
