Today, May 27, Orthodox Christians celebrate the Trinity Sunday

Today, May 27, Orthodox Christians celebrate the Trinity Sunday. This Day is also called the Pentecost, because it is the 50th day after Easter. The holiday is one the 12 largest Christian holidays. According to legends, on the Trinity Day, God created the earth and adorned it with greenery. It is believed that it was on this day that the Holy Spirit, which symbolizes the Trinity of God, descended upon the holy Apostles, followers of Jesus Christ. According to the New Testament, on this day, God granted the apostles a gift of speaking in different languages. And the Trinity Sunday is considered the birthday of the Church. All Orthodox churches on the Holy Trinity Day are decorated with branches of birch, lilac, maple, linden - they symbolize the renewal of the soul. People consecrate bouquets of wild flowers and bring them home as amulets against various disasters and diseases. The Trinity Sunday for Orthodox Christians has always been one of the most wonderful and most anticipated holidays, and its traditions date back to pre-Christian times.
