Days Until Saint Basil’s Day 2018
Orthodox Christians recognize January 1 as St. Basil’s Day. St. Basil (c. 329-379) was born in central Turkey and became famous for his intellectual brilliance, his care of the poor, and the rules he wrote to govern monastic life. Greeks celebrate St. Basil’s Day with gift giving, carol singing, a special kind of bread, and a number of customs designed to attract good luck for the coming year (thefreedictionary.com).
