Duhovden or Pentecost is among the major holidays of the Lord. Popularly, it's known by many names, such as Duovden, Doedni, Holy Spirit, Holy Trinity, Pentecost (pedesetnica), etc. It's celebrated ten days after Ascension (Ascension) and fifty days after Easter (Resurrection).

It's called Pentecost and not just because it is celebrated fifty days after Easter but also because the event occurred exactly on the Jewish feast of Pentecost when Jews honored the memory of the day when the Lord gave Moses the 10 commandments at Mount Sinai.

This holiday is usually associated with the souls of the dead, and customs that are performed on this day are connected with those beliefs.
