St. Nicholas Day!

St. Mykolai (in Ukrainian) is a patron of common people, children, prisoners and captives.

Near our apartment stands St. Mykolai’s church. It was very crowded. Yulia and I went to place candles. There was a long line to buy candles and an even longer line to place them or to pray directly in front of the icon to St. Mykolai. We bought candles and placed them elsewhere in the church.
