The day of St. Stefan

The third day of the Christmas holidays – December 27th – is Stefanovden, the day of St. Stefan. Today people named Stefan, Stefana, Stefka, Stoyan, Stanka, Stoimen, Stoichko, Tsonio, Zapryan, Tsonka, etc., have a name-day. The meals, once again, are mostly meat-based.

Brave natives of Varna named Stefan participated in the annual bathing in the Black Sea for the day of St. Stefan. They coped with the -2 degrees temperature of the air and 3-4 degrees temperature of the water to honor their name-day. Metorologists predict that temperatures in the remaining days of the year will be low, staying below zero.
