Feast Day

Tomorrow is the feast day of Saints Cyrill and Methodius, the creators of the Cyrillic alphabet which is used by eight major languages (Belarusian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Macedonian, Russian, Rusyn, Serbian, and Ukrainian). It’s one of the largest and most important holidays in Bulgaria. There will be a parade through the center of town as well as preformances by the students at my school. I’ll be sure to take lots of photos.

It’s also an important day since it marks the end of or the near end of the school year. I went out to lunch today and it was full of dressed up students celebrating the end of high school. If I had just gotten to Bulgaria, I would have been startled by all the of them drinking beer and rakiya. It was also easy to see who the teachers were since they had massive amounts of flowers. I’ll have a full report up sometime this weekend or early next week.
