Sofia, Bulgaria

Russian Orthodox Christians in Sofia will turn out for the blessing of the water today at St. Nikolai Church.  It's the feast of Theophany, the time to celebrate Jesus' baptism in the River Jordan.  And, since it's the twelfth day after Christmas in the old Julian calendar, it's also the feast of the Epiphany:  two holidays for the price of one.  [2010]
