Today, 12th July is the day of St. Apostles Peter and Paul (Macedonian: Petar and Pavle). This holiday among people is known as Petrovden, and with this holiday ends one of the four periods of fasting during the year, which is tied to the Feast of the Apostles.
Today the Church celebrates two Supreme Apostles, Peter and Paul. The Apostle Peter is celebrated as a model of strong and sincere faith, and Paul as one who mostly preached about the crucified and risen Jesus Christ. Otherwise they, like all the other apostles have their own separate holidays during the religious service season.

One of the most significant events which marks Petrovden is the beginning of the traditional Galicnik wedding.
