By accepting the new calendar, Slavs, with the rest of the European nations have dedicated the 5th day of the week to a female divinity. Friday to this day in the southern and eastern Slavic nations is revered in the likeness of a figure called Петка (Petka) or Пятница (Pyatnitsa). To the people, she is observed as the protector of women; first and foremost of pregnant ones, and the most protected women are the ones that pay her the most respect. She also becomes the one who punishes them if they work on a Friday. Her connection to the former high goddess is also evident though sacrificial rites. Offering of the sacrifices would occur near the spring, and would be mainly carried out by women. The women would bring her wooden idol and place it besides the spring, recite prayers and then offer fabric, hemp, and wool by throwing them into the water. In parts of Russia this type of ritual was referred to as мокрида (mokryda). The word itself brings us back to Mokosh, stemming from the same etymological roots, meaning mokro (wet/moist).
