Barbara or Barbara. The day is in memory of the Holy Barbara from Nicomedia , who should have died in the early 300-number . (306) Sogene says she was confined in a tower or a hole of the pagan father who enroll her to the Roman authorities when he found out that she had become a Christian . She was tortured eventually beheaded by his father, who immediately was struck by lightning and burned to ashes. The Holy Barbara was taken out of the Catholic saint calendar in 1989, when one did not find evidence that she had lived.

Marking and faith related to the day. Since Barbara is tied to the sound of the lightning, she is known as the saint of marksmen and fireworks. Her day is thus marked by numerous artillery regiment , including in Norway. This day was a traditional began to spinna for Christmas – and winter clothing . One said that like the sun disappeared that day and came back lussi night the 13th December .

Saint Barbara, (Greek: Αγία Βαρβάρα), Feast Day December 4, known in the Eastern Orthodox Church as the Great Martyr Barbara, was anearly Christian saint and martyr. Accounts place her in the 3rd century. There is no reference to her in the authentic early Christian writings, nor in the original recension of Saint Jerome’s martyrology. Her name can be traced to the 7th century, and veneration of her was common, especially in the East, from the 9th century.[1] Because of doubts about the historicity of her legend, she was removed from the liturgical calendar of the Roman rite in 1969 in Pope Paul VI‘s motu proprio Mysterii Paschalis.[2]
