For many years on December 6 in Poland the so called “mikołajki” secular tradition is celebrating (Mikołaj – Claus). Like in many other countries a guy dressed in red suit distributes gifts for children. Fortunately, here and there in Poland this beautiful gesture of charity is still assigned to the bishop Claus. In the photo story below we present the church ceremony which took place on December 5, 2014 in the church in Nakło Śląskie (Upper Silesia). It was a mix of Upper Silesia and Beskidy Mountains folk tradition. Kids dressed in regional folk clothes danced traditional Silesian “trojak” dance while highlander’s folk ensemble from Szczyrk performed (separately) its music. After that each child received a package with gifts funded by sponsors, then many of them danced with “angels” around the fire. It is a kind of unusual for Poland but fine. Santa Claus is used also for distributing gifts on Christmas Eve. Pictures were made by Renata Głuszek.
