Pentecost in Estonia

Pentecost is a Christian holiday commemorating the descent of the Holy Ghost upon the disciples of Jesus Christ, according to the New Testament of the Bible. It is also known as Whitsunday, or Whit Sunday.

Is Pentecost a Public Holiday?

Pentecost is a public holiday. It is a day off for the general population, and schools and most businesses are closed.

In 2020 it falls on a Sunday. Due to this, some businesses may choose to follow Sunday opening hours.

According to Christian texts, the Holy Spirit, often symbolized by a dove, descended on the apostles who received the gift of tongues. Pentecost celebrates this event.
