Ignazhden

Wednesday December 20th 2006, 7:34 am

For the Bulgarians, today is Ignazhden, the feast of St. Ignatius of Antioch, and apparently it’s a big celebration in Sofia. The old Antiochene is to Bulgaria what St. Lucy is to Sweden and St. Nicholas is to other countries, the major December saint. So you’d better party like it’s, um, 99.
