The Christmas tale begins with St. Nicholas Day. I congratulate young and adult Ukrainians with this magical holiday.
St. Nicholas Day is one of the brightest and most joyful religious holidays, filled with warmth, care and love, mercy and generosity. Ukrainians have long considered Saint Nicholas their patron saint, educator and protector of children and youth.
This day, even adults come to believe in miracles, and kids look forward to the morning to peek under their pillow or magic boot.
Nicholas the Wonderworker became famous for his kindness and willingness to help everyone in need. He brings gifts to the youngest, and encourages adults to have mercy, compassion, and care.
May this holiday inspire us with love and good deeds and give us faith in the
fulfillment of our most cherished desires.
May St. Nicholas come to every home and bring peace, fill hearts with joy, hope and light.
Honorary consul of the Republic of Moldova
