Dec 26 - St. Stephen's Day (Sv. Štěpán)
This 2nd day of Christmas, commemorates the first Christian martyr, St. Stephen. It is a day of rest or den odpočinku. People take a rest from their everyday stresses and worries and spend time with their families. Many pay visits to their relatives and friends, exchanging Christmas gifts and wishing each other Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It also includes plentiful tables and families will usually have their favorite food (with lots of Christmas cookies) eaten in excess. The day is celebrated by giving boxes of leftovers to the poor in honor of the generosity of Stephen. "Good King Wenceslas", is a Christmas carol that celebrates Saint Stephen's Day.
