About Holy Christmas and New Year

"One of the festive postage stamps depicts an ancient Lithuanian mythological creature - a nine-horned deer carrying celestial bodies in its horns.

The deer takes nine days on this journey, so the deer is called a nine-horned. It is believed that it carries the sun in its horns, so the nine-horned deer symbolizes the light returned to Earth, and at the same time the most beautiful holidays of the year are brought to each house - St. Christmas.
