Pentecost was the feast of the Sinai covenant for the Jews at the time of Christ. Then its signs were the roar of the wind and fire, signs of God's presence and the outpouring of grace. The signs of the New Covenant were announced by the prophets in the Old Testament, before the birth of Christ: "I will make a new covenant with you...then...I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you...I will put my Spirit in you..." (Ez. 36,25-27; 11 ,19; Jer. 31,31k). John the Baptist also prophesied about the Holy Spirit: "Jesus will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire" (Matthew 3:11) Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, and right after that the Holy Spirit descended on Jesus in the form of a dove. Therefore, in Catholic iconography, the sign of the Holy Spirit is the dove. The subject of the Catholic Pentecost is the fulfillment of the Easter mystery: the coming of the Holy Spirit, the outpouring of his gifts, the new law and the birthday of the Church. It had a vigil until 1956 and an octave until 1969, the Easter period ending with the Saturday following Pentecost. From 1969, Whit Monday already belongs to the mid-year period. Whit Monday is a public holiday in Hungary.
Its origins are the Old Testament Jewish religious holiday, Hebrew in Hebrew, the Day of Remembrance of the Legislation (giving to the lake) and the Feast of the New Bread.
According to the Old Testament, the Lord assigned three major feasts to the Jews. "Consecrate me a holiday three times a year! Keep the holiday of unleavened bread! You shall eat unleavened bread for seven days, as I commanded you, in the appointed time of the month Abib, because that is when you came out of Egypt. Let no one appear before me empty-handed! Then the harvest festival, when you harvest the first fruits of your field's sowing. And the harvest festival at the end of the year, when you harvest the crops from the field. Every man should appear before the Lord God three times a year (in Jerusalem)!” (Exodus 23:14-17)
So the middle one is the feast of Pentecost, it is the 50th day. "Count from the day after the Sabbath, that is, from the day on which you take the sheaf intended for presentation, seven full weeks. Count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath, and then present a new food offering to the Lord!" (Leviticus 23:15-16) “And when the day of Pentecost came, and they were all together in the same place, suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a great gust of wind, which filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then some tongues of flame appeared in front of them, which spread out and landed on each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different languages; as the Spirit gave them to speak. There were many pious Jewish men in Jerusalem at that time from among all the nations of the earth. When the noise arose, this crowd ran together, and there was a great confusion, because everyone heard them speaking in their own language." (Acts 2:1-6)
The apostle Peter explained to those present that what Joel had prophesied had now been fulfilled: "In the last days, says God, I will fill all mortals with my Spirit, and your sons and daughters will prophesy, and your young men will see visions, and your elders will dream dreams; even on my servants and maidservants I will fill them with my Spirit in those days, and they will also prophesy.” (Acts 2:17-18) Jesus also promised the Advocate whom He would send from the Father, "the Spirit of Truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will testify about me." (John 15:26b). "However, I tell you the truth: it is better for you if I go away; for if I do not go, the Protector will not come to you, and if I go, I will send Him to you. And when he comes, he will reveal to the world what is sin, what is righteousness, and what is judgment. The sin is that they do not believe in me; the truth is that I am going to the Father and you will see me no more; and the judgment is that the prince of this world is judged.” (John 16:7-11) So Jesus filled his Holy Spirit.
It is celebrated on the fiftieth day after Easter known from scripture, on the seventh Sunday after Easter and on the following Monday. Thus, the earliest possible date of Pentecost (in Western Christianity) is May 10-11, and the latest is June 13-14.
Its Greek name (πεντηκοστή, Pentecost) also means 50, and the Hungarian word Pentecost comes from it. Similar to Easter, it lasts all week, but only two days are a public holiday. Although Pentecost is only mentioned as a holiday in the 2nd century by ancient Christian writers (Tertullian, Origen), its celebration is as old as the church, so it dates back to the time of the apostles. The sacrament of confirmation is traditionally celebrated in the Roman Catholic Church starting from the feast of Pentecost. Because of the holiday, the month of May is also called the month of Pentecost, but the seventh Sunday after Easter often falls in June.
There are several customs associated with Pentecost in Hungarian culture. Several of their elements date back to pre-Christian times. It can be traced back to the Roman floralia, which were festive occasions greeting spring when they greeted the goddess Flora, the goddess of flora and flowers (in a broader sense, fertility). The goddess is called Hloriss in Greek, meaning Green, Virulence. Source: Wikipedia
