Today is holiday in Austria, Christian holiday the Pentecost! a Christian liturgical year commemorating the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the remaining eleven Apostles of Christ. Pentecost is celebrated seven weeks, 50 days after Easter Sunday.
Among Christians, Pentecost commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Twelve apostles and other followers of Jesus as described in the Acts of the Apostles 2:1-31. For this reason, Pentecost is sometimes described as the “Birthday of the Church.” And the end of the season of Easter.
Hence, it is holiday everybody got up late except hubby who has begun his work early in the morning at 6 am.
The best time to sleep longer during holidays. My kids and I loves it most then we had brunch, breakfast and lunch in one:)
I just fried the left over rice from lunch yesterday with scrambled egg, green peas, carrots, garlic and spring onions then made a down-sized burger for viand. Of course with coffee and tea with milk for me, made our brunch special as that on this Pentecost Monday at home:-)
Ascension and Pentecost remind us that we are part of a continuing story that did not end with Christ’s resurrection, and by celebrating at home, we connect our lives, churches and stories with the narrative of the church. It is traditional in many churches to wear red on Pentecost. It is a feast day.
