Admittedly, I had never heard of this holiday until today.
My mom sent me a photo (see below) on Facebook. And can I just say what an amazing photograph?
On January 6th, the Bulgarian Eastern Orthodox church honors Epiphany.
Epiphany (Greek for “to manifest” or “to show”), is a Christian feast day which celebrates the alleged revelation of God in human form in the person of Jesus Christ.
Novinite has a great article on the holiday explaining what it’s all about.
Sounds pretty cool to me if I do say so myself, especially the “Great Blessing of Waters.”
I’d actually love to attend the ceremonies in Sofia one day.
Fantastic and interesting Bulgarian traditions: just another reason I am beyond excited to live there!
