Someone told me recently that baptisms/marriages aren't allowed at all in August due to Dormition. Could someone unpackage this a bit for me? Baptisms are done during Great Lent and Nativity Lent, but not Dormition?
If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.
I would suggest most persons in general avoid any question beginning with why.

Baptisms are done during Great Lent and Nativity Lent, but not Dormition?Prohibition of marriages, yes, obviously. But prohibition of baptisms? Never come across it in all my years in Orthodoxy. In fact, there are several people I know who were baptized during this time.
The only time when baptisms are not performed (and it is not by prohibition, but a pious custom) is the period between Christmas and Theophany.
I could think of people themselves not having it at that time, as it dampens the celebration.
This is a great day for this forum and for the internet. Mor's energies like a burning comet are raining possibilities for enlightenment upon us all.
Everyone wants Mor.
Mor, you're a jackass.
