Orthodox Christians celebrate the Holy Transfiguration of our Lord Jesus Christ


The Orthodox Christians all over the world are celebrating one of the most respected Christian holidays today –the Holy Transfiguration of our Lord Jesus Christ and the believers traditionally glorify the unity of the God and the mankind in the person of Jesus Christ.

The Holy Transfiguration belongs to 12 great Christian holidays and people often call it the Second Savior and that is why the Holy Transfiguration is traditionally considered a harvest holiday. Apples, pears, plums and other fruits are sanctified in the churches this day and apples are the most popular and respected and because of that there is even the third name of the holiday – the Apple Savior. The bee-keepers prepare themselves for the holiday especially thoroughly because according to the ancient tradition the bee-hives are sanctified today too and the honey is presented to the neighbors and especially to the orphans, infirm and miserable people.
