Ritual throwing of the Cross into the water of Epiphany

06.01.2019

Sonya Machorska

Epiphanyis a Christian feast day that celebrates the revelation of God the Son as a human being in Jesus Christ. In Western Christianity, the feast commemorates principally (but not solely) the visit of the Magi to the Christ child, and thus Jesus' physical manifestation to the Gentiles. Eastern Christians commemorate the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River, seen as his manifestation to the world as the Son of God.

   In some Western Christian denominations, especially in the past, and also in the present-day Church of England, the feast of the Epiphany also initiates a liturgical season of Epiphanytide.

   With a solemn Holy Mass in the cathedral "St. Dimiter Solunsky" started the great Christian holiday Epiphany in Vidin. The liturgy was served by His Eminence Vidin Metropolitan Daniil in a priestly ministry. After the Bogyavlenski waterfall on the Danube river, Metropolitan Daniil threw the Cross, which was hosted by 11 people. Hundreds of people were citizens and guests of Vidin who came to see the Christian ritual.

   The traditional date for the feast is January 6. However, since 1970, the celebration is held in some countries on the Sunday after January 1. Eastern Churches following the Julian Calendar observe the Theophany feast on what for most countries is January 19 because of the 13-day difference today between that calendar and the generally used Gregorian calendar.

   In Spain, Mexico and others the tradition is that the children write a letter to the Three Kings and sent days before the day of Epiphany.    In many places it is tradition to leave them something to eat and drink (usually some liquor or wine, and sweets) to the Three Kings and their camels. The dishes appear empty the next day, and instead appear gifts.

   Previous day in different places and cities in Spain, Mexico and others are organized lavish procession of the Three Kings, where the magicians distributed gifts and many sweets.

   In popular folklore Befana visits all the children of Italy on the eve of the Feast of the Epiphany to fill their stockings with candy and presents if they are good. Or a lump of coal or dark candy if they are bad. In many poorer parts of Italy and in particular rural Sicily, a stick in a stocking was placed instead of coal.      Being a good housekeeper, many say she will sweep the floor before she leaves. To some the sweeping meant the sweeping away of the problems of the year. The child's family typically leaves a small glass of wine and a plate with a few morsels of food, often regional or local, for the Befana.

   She is usually portrayed as an old lady riding a broomstick through the air wearing a black shawl and is covered in soot because she enters the children's houses through the chimney. She is often smiling and carries a bag or hamper filled with candy, gifts, or both.

New Bulgarian ski area near Serbia

02.01.2019

Sonya Machorska

   The Supreme Administrative Court of the Republic of Bulgaria finally rejected “The Greens” appeal against the ecological assessment of the General Spatial Plan of the future Midzhur ski area over the village of Chuprene, Vidin.

   The project envisages the construction of a recreation area, hiking, ski slopes and facilities on an area of 710 decares. Most of it falls in the Alpine part of the Western Balkan Mountains. There are no forests, but there are natural runs. There are 4 school boards, playgrounds, snowparks, small ski-lifts. This means that the area will be specialized for beginners skiers and children. There will also be a lift that will take you from the village to the area. It will be used by tourists in both winter and summer.

   The author of the project of Midzhur Ski Area is the architect Emil Lekov, author of the ski zone in Bansko. According to him, Chuprene has no worse features than Bansko.

   Beyond this part of the mountain, in Serbia, there is a similar winter center - "Babin Zub", also widely visited by Bulgarians.

   The Midzhur Ski Area will be built around 2020.

   The village of Chuprene is located 20 km from Belogradchik, 70 km from Vidin, 60 km from Montana and 13 km from the border with the Republic of Serbia. Mayor Vanyo Kostin has already run a third term of office in the most active municipal administration in Vidin district. Seventeen have won the European projects of the Municipality of Chuprene worth nearly 21 million leva.
