“We would like to extend warmest greetings to all our friends across the globe and wish you peace, health and happiness in the coming New Year.
During our horse travels through Poland, we had an opportune visit to the beautiful town of Krakøw and learn a favorite holiday custom that we’d like to share here with you as a greeting card: Święty Mikołaja (pictured to the right) is a saintly figure, dressed in a regal red and gold robe, cape and bishops hat, carrying a crosier. He travels the countryside astride a White Horse, blessing the children and distributing goodies (sweets & small presents stuffed under the pillow) to the well-behaved and swishes (rozgi) to the naughty…
Thank you for joining us here in the celebration of beauty, wonder and newfound adventure. May Św. Mikołaja bless you with sweetness and joy in 2010.”
Soniya & Gaurav Walia, Winter solstice 2009.
