Boxing Day/День подарунків.

Arina на Myspace
Boxing Day is a bank and public holiday traditionally celebrated on the 26th of December mainly in United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. 
The term "Boxing Day” is related to middle aged custom to give servants a box containing gifts .
The day after Christmas, servants took wooden boxes to work so that employers could fill those boxes with money or food in return for good and reliable service throughout the year.
Likewise, nowadays, on the boxing Day employers give gifts to their employees. 

May this Boxing Day be as happy and cheerful as Christmas was.
May the happy story continue till the New Year and take over from there too.
Have a great Boxing Day, my friends!;)

Holidays:St. Nicolas Day/Свята: День Святого Миколая.

St. Nicholas Does His Magic. Free St. Nicholas Day eCards 12…
Happy St. Nicolas Day, my dear friends!;)

Holy Bishop St. Nicholas lived faraway
Near the Aegean Sea is where Turkey did lay.
Travel back with us now to a time long ago.
We will visit his country, his life we will know.
We remember this saint, such a holy, good man.
Be like him in charity, do all that you can.
Many miracles Nicholas hastened to do,
Helping people in need with gifts that were new.
Bishop Nicholas traveled to Nicea town,
Where the Creed would be written, to us handed down.
During church every Sunday, we stand for the Creed.
Thank you Bishop St. Nicholas, for doing this deed.
Sailors tossed in the wind and the storms of the sea,
Saw a vision of Nicholas who guided them free.
Now patron of sailing, they remember him yet.
Many icons and pictures with fisherman's net.
Giving money to poor girls, so marry could they,
Made our Nicholas famous, remembered today.
With dowry in hand, soon they were wed
"God bless you and keep you," St. Nicholas said.
Kid's patron in Germany, Netherlands, too.
Asks that presents be given to children like you.
Their customs are different: they put out their shoes—
Filling them with toys, his coming's good news!
Here stockings are hung by the chimney with care,
In hope that St. Nicholas soon will come there.
Dressed as bishop or Santa, he's one and the same—
Jolly, friendly, good man, we're glad that he came.
Call him "Santa" or "saint," they both mean the same,
For his nickname is Claus, short for Nicholas' name.
Giving gifts was his custom—we still do today.
Deeds done in Jesus' name forever will stay.
Bishop Nicholas still is a hero to all.
Christmas Day, and all others we follow his call,
Bringing gifts and some joy to children in need.
Follow Nicholas today—do a good deed.
