Bulgarian Christians Mark Transfiguration
In Bulgarian folklore, that days has another meaning.
It is believed to bring a transformation in the natural environment, ushering fall and marking the nearing end of summer.
Funny that it should be so early there; I remember last November, it still looked like summer. Well, a little.
Here I guess the end of summer is the end of August. Though the weather can be good right into September, and the boundaries between seasons are kind of fractal, with summer and autumn coming and going several times in a couple of weeks before things settle down and become depressing.
