Culture and Literacy Day

Culture and Literacy Day is a public holiday in Bulgaria, and it is observed on May 24 each year. The holiday is a holiday to celebrate the importance of the Bulgarian language and the Cyrillic alphabet, which was created by St. Cyril and St. Methodius.

St. Cyril and St. Methodius are two brothers who were born in the 9th century in Greece. When they grew up, they both became missionaries and brought Christianity to the Slavic peoples of central Europe.

They created the Glagolitic alphabet to translate the Bible when they were in preparation for their mission to the Slavs, and because of their missionary work, they were recognized as saints.

Culture and Literacy Day had been an official holiday in Bulgaria since 1990.
