of the Sophientag is the 15. May.

The Sophientag reminds of the Märtyrerin Sophia, which died around 304 in Rome.

The day is meteorologically often characterized by a cooling break-down after the ice-holy ( the cold Sophie). A weather rule reads:

  • "Vor Nachtfrost du erst sicher bist, wenn die Sophie vorüber ist".
