Dancing sun at Whitsun / Pentecoast

May 21, 2013

dancing sun Denmark

Whitsun / Pentecost is one of the three most important feasts related to the church, celebrating the arrival of  the Holy Spirit, who made it possible for the disciples to talk all languages, and spread the message of Jesus.  Beside the Church arrangements, Whitsun / Pentecost is celebrated with…lunches. Like at Christmas and Easter, friends and family are gathered at “Pinse-frokost”, and there are three days to spend on that. Saturday, sunday and monday. No wonder that we are sure that the sun is dancing when it appears in the horizon at Whit sunday. It has been a tradition in generations to go out and enjoy the sight together.

Whitsun/Pentacoast this year was at May 18, 19 and 20
