The Bulgarian Orthodox church is holding solemn church services to celebrate Holy Spirit Monday today.

On this day the Holy Spirit is said to have descended to the apostles and they received the gifts of the Holy Spirit. When they embrace the mysteries of the Holy Spirit people are transformed. The day is a moveable feast that falls 51 days after Easter, the day after Pentecost.

At the initiative of Macedonian refugees in Sofia, Holy Spirit Monday is also the day of Macedonia and the people who lost their lives for its freedom.
