Pentecost - the End of the Easter Cycle
May 2018, 19-21
He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.
There is life in the flowers on the fruit tree,
There is power in the song of the birds.
There is joy in the song.
There is heat in the fighting spirit.
Pentecost is about energy
Pentecost is the birthday of the Christian Church
In earlier time Pentecost was the holiday of the youth. Their Summer parties began. The youth from many villages in a county met, they played and danced together. The nature is mostly very nice at this time of the year. The trees are light green, the birds are courting and singing, it is a fine time to take a picnic basket and make parties in the wood or the meadows.
It is also common to merry at Pentecost. It is a romantic feeling this time of the awakening nature. You can decorate the church with fresh green leaves and flowers.
Holidays in Sweden
In many congregations the confirmation of the youth is carried out at Pentecost. It is the Holiday of the Youth.
