  6. Well I had to be the dunce who had to make a wisecrack about St. Stephen.

    In all seriousness, I don't consider Christmas Day officially over until after the Feast of St. Stephen. Everytime I hear the Christmas carol Good King Wenceslaus- which happens to be one of my favorite carols - I think of him.

  7. Terry--in Eastern Europe, men with the name Stephen are routinely pelted with walnuts on St. Stephen's day. BTW, it's celebrated on December 27th by the Eastern Churches, both Catholic and Orthodox.
