One swallow does not make spring, but two swallows are a sure sign of it.
In the Slavic tradition, the period between March 1 and 9 was called Jaskolka. It was the time of evoking spring, prayers and incantations, as well as predicting the weather for the new year (Slavs celebrate the New Year, or Jare Święto, on March 21).
When you saw the first spring swallow in the sky, you had to bow your head and look what was under your feet. If there was any material useful for building a swallow's nest (such as hair), you had to put it in your pocket and always carry it with you. This brought great luck. Another good omen was a swallow's nest in the farmyard, and knocking it down threatened swallows with severe revenge, including freckles and pustules.
Interestingly, according to folk beliefs, swallows did not come from warm countries in the spring. In autumn, the birds joined their tails and beaks to form living circles and fell into winter sleep at the bottom of the lake.
