Bulgarian Christians Celebrate Transfiguration of Christ
The Bulgarian Orthodox Church marks Saturday the Feast of the Transfiguration, one of the major religious holidays in the year.
Celebrated on August 6, the feast marks the day when Apostles Peter, John and Jacob saw Jesus Christ be transfigured by divine light on Mount Tabor.
For Christians this is a sign of Christ's divine nature, a manifestation of his being Son of God and God himself.
The Tabor Light is of a special significance for Eastern Orthodox Christians, showing that God - more specifically, God's energies - are directly present in this world.
In Bulgarian popular beliefs, the Feast is connected to change an renewal. Fairs and festivities are held in small towns.
It is believed that the day marks a palpable change in the year, the summer withdrawing and setting the stage for the fall. If anyone witnesses signs of the future, they are bound to come true.
