Official holiday and one of the most favourite days to all Bulgarians.

The people honour the holy brothers Cyril and Methodius, the creators of the Bulgarian and Slavonic alphabet, while the church holds a thanksgiving service. All schools are decorated with wreaths and flowers. Citizens march with portraits of St. St. Cyril and Methodius in a procession.
