Farmers do not like to start sowing the seeds any day but Friday. It is supposed to be a lucky day. They like to start ploughing and doing all their work on Friday.


It is said that the fourth day of the year is a cross day. Tuesday is the cross day of the year this year so nobody is getting married on that day.

Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays are unlucky day for marriages.
