Sozomen H.E. 2.26.4

From that time the church of Jerusalem has kept the anniversary of this feast splendidly, so as to perform initiation at it and to assemble for eight continuous days, and multitudes congregate from every place under the sun, who for the history of the holy places come together from all sides for the time of this festal assembly.
