All Souls' Day, also known as Cherry All Souls' Day after the fruit popular during this season, is celebrated on Saturday before Pentecost. On this day Orthodox Christians pay respect to the dead.

Believers do not do housework to direct their thoughts to those who have passed into the afterlife. In the calendar of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church there are another two similar days during the year.
