Orthodox Holy Saturday is that Saturday that comes between the day of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ that is Good Friday and the Easter Sunday which is the day of resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Many Orthodox Christians mark Orthodox Holy Saturday as the day Jesus Christ was buried.
The countries that follow the Julian calendar call it the Orthodox Holy Day while the countries that follow the Gregorian Calendar call it the Holy Day. Both these dates are flexible according to the date of Easter. It is celebrated in Canada and is a festival in Russia.

Orthodox Holy Saturday Quotes:-
-“Every Holy Saturday, the Church waits as it were beside the tomb, meditating on Christ’s death while awaiting the announcement of his resurrection. Like John, we can take Mary into our homes and ponder with her the last words of Christ. Like her, we can rest in a place between anguish and joy, waiting in quiet hope. We can pray the Divine Office, which parts the veil to show us, Christ, defeating death and releasing sinners from captivity. The King is not dead; he rests from his work. A new day will come. His Cross is not defeat; it is victory!”
― Sarah Christmyer, Walk in Her Sandals: Experiencing Christ’s Passion through the Eyes of Women
-“Just as when we were children, we were afraid to be alone in the dark and could only be assured by the presence of someone who loved us. Well, this is exactly what happened on Holy Saturday, the voice of God resounded in the realm of death. The unimaginable occurred; namely, love penetrated Hell.”
― Robert Cardinal Sarah
-“On Holy Saturday I do my best to live in that place, that wax-crayon place of trust and waiting. Of accepting what I cannot know. Of mourning what needs to be mourned. Of accepting what needs to be accepted. Of hoping for what seems impossible.”
― Jerusalem Jackson Greer, A Homemade Year: The Blessings of Cooking, Crafting, and Coming Together
