We asked Agnieszka Magnucka if they still celebrate St. Nick's Day in modern day Poland, she wrote: "Yes, it's true. It's not only for children. Also adults can enjoy presents on that day. Usually we do small gifts on St. Nick's day and then bigger at Christmas Eve... Lucky we."



Thanks to Agnieszka Magnucka for the recording!
