Happy St Haralampi Day

Today is St Haralampi's day. He's the Christian Orthodox patron saint of bee-keepers, and is believed to be the first to have discovered the healing powers of honey and bee products. (More apisaints.)

Today an expo in Bulgaria is discussed plans to develop beekeeping in the country from funds anticipated from the European Union. Last year the EU enforced grants for countries with three-year national development programs in the sector.

Last year Bulgaria exported 5,620 tones of honey, 70% of it to the EU.
