Whit Monday History
Pentecost is a Christian festival that celebrates the gift of the Holy Spirit. The day used to be known as Whitsun, a Christian holiday. The festival 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.
The holiday takes place on the Sunday 50 days after Easter. Today, Pentecost is not widely celebrated as a religious day, instead a secular public holiday gives workers in many industries the day off. This year Pentecost falls on 15 May.
