Mikołajki aka Santa Claus Day :)

Happy Mikołajki everyone :D

It's 6th of December and so today everyone in Poland celebrates Mikołajki, since according to catholic church it is the day of Saint Nicholas. To explain the festivities it's important to look at the fact that Nicholas in Polish means Mikołaj, then Saint Nicholas would be Święty Mikolaj, which is the then same as Santa Claus in English.
And so, basically it is Santa Claus Day and the tradition is to celebrate it by giving little gifts to one another :) There you have it.
Whoop whoop
