Schedule of Nativity "Yolka" Celebrations in Eastern American Diocesan Parishes

Many diocesan parishes hold annual "Yolka" celebrations, during which children of the local parish school prepare thematic plays, dances, song and poem recitals, and much more, as an expression of their love for the feast of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ.
