PALM COAST, FL – Though this year’s holiday celebrations will undoubtedly be different, the traditions of the season always bring a special cheer to our hearts at Christmas and New Year’s.
As Elias Papadeas of Patmos Press which sells Eastern Orthodox books and gifts, said, “It's time to insert some joy into our lives with the upcoming holidays and the New Year Vasilopita tradition.”
The Official Golden St. Basil keepsake coins are now available for sale, designed by Fr. George L. Papadeas and beautifully minted with the image of St. Basil the Great expressly for the New Year celebration as an excellent client gift, fundraiser, or stocking stuffer and collectable, to preserve this wonderful tradition.
The Cutting of the Vasilopita is a 1,600 year-old custom in the Eastern Orthodox Church all over the world. Whoever finds the coin in their piece of the Vasilopita has good luck for the whole year.
