St. Nicholas Day is celebrated on December 19, in the middle of the first winter month. From year to year, small Ukrainians are waiting for gifts from St. Nicholas, who traditionally leaves them under pillows or inside the shoes. Everyone believes in his miracles and that he brings gifts only to the obedient children.
The name comes from the name of the Apostle Andrew the First-Called. The night before is the time of the girl's divination - it was believed that girls and young men on the night of Saint Andrew's Day can see their betrotheds.
