I tre giorni della merla2017
The days of the blackbird are the 29th, 30th and 31st of January. This is perhaps the closest thing in Italian folklore to the observance of Groundhog Day February 2nd in the United States, according to which, if the groundhog sees its shadow, winter will last another six weeks. The legend of the days of the blackbird has its roots in Roman times when in the calendar the month of January still only contained 28 days. Tired of the ongoing harassment, one year the blackbird decided to gather enough provisions for a month and closed herself in her nest-lair, taking refuge for the entire month of January, which at the time had only 28 days. The last day of the month, thinking to have outsmarted the wicked January, she left her hideaway and started singing to mock him. January took such great offence that he asked February which then still had 31 days for a loan of three days, and he let rip with snow storms, wind, ice, and rain. From today forward, I January will have 31 days, and the last three will be the coldest of the year.

One topic of conversation that comes up frequently is the weather! There has been much talk about the colder temperatures and everyone is making predictions on whether it will snow or not. During one of these conversations my Zia told me a story you might even call it a legend that she heard when she was a little girl. It is said that the last three days of January leading into the first of February would be the coldest of the year. The story says that one winter long ago, on the last days of January, the winter was very cold; so cold that a blackbird, which at the time had white feathers, desperately sought refuge for her and her three offspring.
A long time ago in Milan there was a very hard winter and snow covered the whole city. The little family suffered from the cold and from anger: it was so difficult to find something to eat! Even the few crumbs they found were immediately covered with snow. After three days, the father returned and was almost unable to recognize his family, as the black smoke from the chimney had changed all their feathers from white to black! Fortunately, from that day on, the winter became less rigid and the blackbirds were able to find enough food to get to the spring.
The month of January is slipping away. It is almost already over. Time is flying by but not the cold! Even if we are on the threshold of February, we are still in the middle of winter. There is a cold that just sinks into your bones and makes you wonder if summer will ever arrive.

Ma andiamo oltre… In alcuni territori della pianura Padana , si narra di un contadino che, attraversando un fiume gelato con il carro trainato dalla cavalla Merla , sia stato inghiottito dalle acque gelide, a causa della rottura del sottile strato di ghiaccio. Il servo, arrivato sulle sponde del Po, vide che il freddo intenso degli ultimi giorni ne aveva ghiacciato le acque. Arrivato a destinazione, lo fece impiccare. Ve le riporto nella loro versione originale. Sempre di sposi si racconta, anche, nel Lodigiano. Dopo ben tre giorni passati dai parenti in attesa che le condizioni climatiche migliorassero e visto che non vi era nessun cenno di miglioramento, decisero di attraversare a piedi il fiume che, dato il gran freddo, era ghiacciato. Vi dicevo che tutte le leggende hanno qualcosa in comune e vanno a giustificare un dato di fatto oggettivo freddo alla fine di gennaio o riportano, enfatizzandolo, un evento veramente accaduto.
