Bulgarian folk customs and holidaysEvery foreigner who comes in Bulgaria for a first time is really surprised of the number of holidays and celebrations with which the Bulgarian holiday calendar is full with.

Most of the holidays date from centuries and their roots are not clear.

They have deep relation with the everyday life of the ancient Bulgarians.

Most of the Bulgarian folk customs and holidays today have vanished but some still remain as “keepers” of the national originality.

Don’t however forget someones name-day or you’ll be in big trouble, a simple “chestito” (congratulations) by phone, sms or Facebook is usually enough to get you invited to the name-day party.
