Vinegrower's Day - February 14
- Bulgaria is the place where this festival takes place every year since the entering of the old Catholic Costumes in there a long time ago.
- This festival marks the end of the Youle Season and the inauguration of the new Vine Season.
- By the old religious tradition, the date was February 1, but it has been changed to February 14 because of the St Valentine's birthday on this date.

Good Valentine's Day and Vinegrower's Day to all my Bulgarian friends.
