A brief annotation Christmas is one of the main Christian holidays, established in honor of the birth of Jesus Christ, the son of the Virgin Mary. Christmas holiday was established in IV century by a Roman emperor Constantine who converted to Christianity and legalized Christmas by a special decree. Since that time the Christians reverently refer to the holy night of Christmas. Houses and temples are decorated with fir branches in advance, evergreen of which has long been considered a symbol of the tree of life. It is believed that in this sacred moment the sky is revealed towards the earth and the supreme forces themselves heed the requests of people: none of their desires will remain unfulfilled.

В подарок было бы неплохо такую монету получить, я думаю.
