I giorni della merla

These should have been the traditionally and (till some time ago) statistically coldest days of the year. "I giorni della merla" (the blackbird lady's days) are somehow celebrated and long waited, at least in the northern regions of Italy. A time to stay put at home, cozy and warm.
I don't know about similar traditions and sayings here in Austria. The weather has recently taken a break, forgetting traditions to respect and stats to maintain: it will give us some more chilling days, for sure, but not soon ... later on.
