Do you know the reason why grandmothers always say that it is wrong to cut your nails on Friday?

Do you know the reason why grandmothers always say that it is wrong to cut your

These are some prejudices that simply cannot be understood. For years we hear from grandmothers that it is not good to cut nails when it is Wednesday or Friday. Does anyone understand this to explain to us?

You may have heard your grandma / mom say, "Don't cut your nails on Wednesdays and Fridays." But why did they say and do this in the old days, and it has remained to this day?

It is basically a prevention, but it has a religious background.

See below to find out where this prevention comes from:

Wednesday and Friday are, according to the Orthodox Church, days of fasting and are celebrated with the cessation of household chores from the afternoon of the previous day, as happens on the eve of the holidays. Even because fasting is related to the concept of absence, not even the smallest thing, which can be a nail, should be missed. Thus, there is a prevention that nails should not be cut during these two days.

The above prevention continues, with the ban on washing, shaving and combing on Sunday. Again for religious reasons: Sunday, like the day of the Lord, is an absolute day of rest , so we do not do any work, not even cleaning or personal care.

Of course, there is no mention of body washing here, which could mean two things: either permissible or in the past bathing included cleansing the body.
