Feast of Saint Basil
Start Date: 1/1/2017 All Day
End Date: 1/1/2017

Event Description:
Orthodox Christian holyday. The Feast of St. Basil is celebrated on New Year's Day in Greece and has special significance as Orthodox Christians throughout the world commemorate the memory of one of the great Church fathers, St. Basil. Unlike in the Western tradition, gifts are exchanged on "St. Basil's Day," or New Year's Day, commemorating the gifts that the real St. Basil brought to the poor children of the villages of Asia Minor where he lived.
