This day was an important milestone in the folk calendar. Peasants finished all field activities by the Intercession of the Mother of God Day because the ground used to become frozen by October 14. It is reasonable when they say that on this day we have autumn in the morning and winter in the evening. People began protecting their houses from the cold on this day, held a ceremony of feeding their cattle to be sure it will feel well in winter.
