Flowers day, week before Eastern

The Sunday before Eastern is the Flowers day or Tzvetnica in Bulgarian. This year it is on 1st of April 2018.

The word Tzvetnica comes from the word tzvete that means flower.

Almost everybody goes to the church. In the morning you will see ques in front of the Bulgarian churches.  The priests give willow twigs to believers. People make willow wreathes an leave them  at the entrance door.

A lot of Bulgarians have name day. Tzvetnica is a great spring holiday. It is during the big Eastern lent and there isn’t specail food. This is the  Flowers day.
