Saint Stephen's Day (Lá Fhéile Stiofáin) in Ireland - December 26

The Stoning of St. Stephen
by Adam Elsheimer (1578-1610)
St. Stephen's Day (The Second Day of Christmas - December 26) is actually a holiday in Ireland, with banks, post offices, and many businesses closed.  Many elect to stay quietly at home ... and hopefully ponder the life of this forgiving martyr.
