Pentecost Monday History
Pentecost Monday is a Christian observance that celebrates the gift of the Holy Spirit. The day, also known as Whit Monday, is generally full of good spirits. Ministers will wear red robes as a symbol of the flames in which the Holy Spirit came to Earth. Symbolism is important on the day. The Holy Spirit is the third part of the Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) which Christians use as a way to interpret God.
Pentecost Monday takes place on the Monday 51 days after Easter. Today, Pentecost and Pentecost Monday are not widely celebrated as religious days, instead a secular public holiday gives workers in many industries the day off.
