As recorded in the New Testament in Acts 2, it was on the 50th day after Easter that the Apostles were praying together and the Holy Spirit descended on them in the form of tongues of fire, and they received the “gift of tongues”—the ability to speak in other languages. The English call it White Sunday, or Whitsunday, after the white garments worn on Pentecost by the newly baptized. In Germany it is called Pfingsten, and pink and red peonies, called Pfingstrosen, or “Whitsun roses,” are the symbols along with birch trees. Discuss
