Enyovden: The Bulgarian Magical Day in June

A two-day festival will be held this weekend 18 km from Varna.

It will take place in the area of Avrenska meadow near the town Beloslav, starting on Saturday morning and will continue until noon on Sunday, when it is celebrated Enyovden, 24 June. The only mandatory condition for the attendants will be clothing. Requirements are for authentic or stage costume, part or costume element.

In the night before Enyovden, the stars descend to the ground and enchant the grasses and flowers, giving them a magical healing power, says the myth. Herbs have the greatest strength, any magic will come true. And to be healthy throughout the year, on Enyovden, early in the morning, before sunrise, wash yourself in running water.

These are part of the faith related to Enyovden - the day of the summer solstice, one of the most important summer holidays in the Bulgarian people's calendar. It has many beliefs about the sun, water, and medicinal plants, and it is considered a patron saint of herbalists.

If you are interested in getting into the magic field of the celebrations, mark the dates June 23 and 24.
