What is Vidovdan and why are we having a Kosovo Charity Banquet?

The name Vidodan derives from St. Vitus Day, a saint marked on the Orthodox calendar June 28, 1389, when the battle of Kosovo against the Turkish army was fought. Because of the loss, a perished army, and the death of Prince Lazar, historical development of the medieval Serbian state was brought to an end. The Nemanjic period of glory and greatness was replaced by another page of Serbianhistory that marks the years and centuries of post-Kosovo's suffering.
