Christian Festivals and Folk Traditions II: Pentecost (Whitsunday)

Wikipedia: Christian Festivals and Folk Traditions II: Pentecost (Whitsunday)
The Christian holiday Pentecost (Ancient Greek: Πεντηκοστή [ἡμέρα], Pentēkostē [hēmera], "the fiftieth [day]") is celebrated fifty days after Easter Day, counting inclusively (including both the first and last days), i.e. seven weeks after Easter Day. It falls on the tenth day after Ascension Thursday (which itself is 40 days after Easter). The feast is also called White Sunday, or "Whitsunday", especially in the United Kingdom.  Read more..
