Although there are those who believe that rain on a wedding mean good luck and blessings from above, most Filipino couples wish for a rain-free wedding. To ensure such, chanting “Rain, rain, go away…” would do no good; it is time to offer eggs to the sisters of the Sta. Clara convent along Marcos Highway.

Sta. Clara is the patron saint of good weather because “claro” in Spanish also means “unclouded,” thus pertaining to fair weather (a cloudless sky). Eggs are offered because “claro” is also believed to refer to the albumen or egg white whose clear consistency is symbolic of a “clear” sky. Do not stop at eggs though, for fruits and other goodies could also be offered to the sisters of Sta. Clara to help you pray for the perfect weather on your big day.
