All day
Pentecost / Whit Sunday

This is a Christian celebration.

At Pentecost Christians celebrate the day when the Holy Spirit is said to have descended on Jesus's Apostles.

The Holy Spirit is the third part of the Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit which is how Christians understand God. Pentecost is regarded as the birthday of the Christian Church, and the start of the Church's mission to the world.
