Bulgarians celebrate mid-summer solstice
24.06.2008   bulgarien.dk

Bulgarians celebrate Monday the Midsummer Day, widely known as Enyovden, a holiday related to traditional beliefs about herbs and their healing power.

Known as Envoyden in Bulgaria, the mid summer solstice on June 24 is celebrated countrywide. It is believed that herbs picked on this day when the sun is at its highest point in the sky have stronger healing powers.

Traditionally, Bulgarians used to roll in dew-covered fields and take baths in rivers and streams, however this tradition remains only with the older generation and today, most Bulgarians celebrate with a concert.

Around the world, midsummer is celebrated in various ways but used to be a celebration in honour of Saint John the Baptist.
