Good Friday

It is good Friday when Jesus was crucified

It Is a Good Friday today. It is the day when when Jesus was crucified.

On that day people don’t work and it is an official non working day in Bulgaria.

Believers visit the church to bow down to the cloak, symbolizing the cloth with which Jesus Christ was buried and go underneath it for health to purify themselves. Тhe priests give a geranium with a root for health.

The Good Friday is a day when people don’t have to eat anything but these days few believers keep this tradition.

Tomorrow is a Great Saturday. On that day people honor the dead, the graves are cleansed, eggs and ritual breads are given for peace to the souls of the dead.
