Pentecost, also known as Whit Sunday or Whitsun, is a Christian holiday occurring on the 50th day after Easter Sunday. It commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Virgin Mary and the Apostles in Jerusalem during the Feast of Weeks, as described in the Acts of the Apostles. Pentecost is a significant celebration in the Eastern Orthodox Church, a Solemnity in the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church, a Festival in Lutheran Churches, and a Principal Feast in the Anglican Communion. As a moveable feast, its date depends on Easter, and the Monday after Pentecost is a legal holiday in various countries.
