No culture can function without its own past and the „cultural remembrance" of the past is usually called tradition. Direct allusions, pressure and sometimes simply orders to remember can be called making remember. The use of causative designates that here creation, generation and preservation of memories are demanded and are in operation. Communication about the future, or more precisely „making remember the future" is not only a theoretical possibility, but actual examples can be quoted especially in connection with eschatology. Hungarian folkloristics has demonstrated that the prognostic outlined in the present study is inseparable from the tradition of calendars, almanacs and the so called „csízió" almanacs, and it carries thousand-year-old cultural elements. For example, the 40 days period mentioned as a weather-boundary could be interpreted like this with the help of culture historical and comparative studies. We can easily realize what the collective reason for the ideology of „making remember the future" is. The theoretical background of the vaticina ex eventu solution is the cyclical nature of time, the „eternal return". The calendar and the system of seasons clearly certify this.
