October 26 - Saint Demetrios of Thessaloniki (Dimitrovden/ Dimitar’s Day)

On October 26, the Orthodox Church honors Saint Demetrios of Thessaloniki (aka Dimitrovden/ Dimitar’s Day). Protector of Christians, St Demetrios was called Myrrh-streamer because after he was killed in 306 his remains emitted strongly scented liquid myrrh. His relics also have miraculous power. Saint Demetrios is one of the most revered saints and is presented as an older brother to Saint George. People say that while St George brings the summer, St Demetrius brings the winter. As a harbinger of winter and cold weather, the saint is linked with the world of the dead. It is considered that after this feast the traditional period for seasonal workers – shepherds and farmhands, comes to an end.
There should be poultry dishes and vegetables on the table on Dimitrovden.
Dimitar, Dimitrina, Mitko, Mityo, Dimo, Dimcho, Dimka, Dimana, etc. celebrate their name day on this date.

KIRIL MARYKKOV AT 75 YEARS OF AGE

An unforgettable concert that will mark the 75th anniversary of the legend of Bulgarian rock - Kiril Marichkov, organized by the National Palace of Culture and The Foundation. The date is not random - it is the birthday of the front man of the group. Kiril Marichkov is a legendary figure – he founded the rock culture in our country, which was born in the 1960s.
He became popular as part of the band Shturtsite (The Crickets) founded in 1967 to grow as a musician with his own distinctive sound based on his own compositions featuring style diversity. The indisputable rock hits created by Marichkov are exemplars in contemporary Bulgarian rock music and inspiration for the young generations of Bulgarian musicians.
