Miracles of Christmas night
Christmas is one of the greatest holidays in Georgia celebrated from the beginning of time: it was in this land that one of the most ancient Orthodox churches was built in the times of Emperor Konstantin. Georgian manner of celebrating Christmas differs from the rest of the countries due to a very beautiful ceremony starting right after the night service. It is the Alilo festive march, a large sacred procession passing along the city; it is held by priests and church people and may be joined by anyone who wants to take part in it.
How great relics reached Georgia
As the legend goes Georgia adopted Christianity literally straight from the source. According to Orthodox legends the first word of Christ was brought to the Iverian land by St Andrew the First-Called, an apostle. It was Holy Mary’s wish that Andrew should go to the land that would later be called Georgia. She sent him to the domain she had chosen. And two centuries later Saint Nina equal to the Apostles set her foot on Iveria to complete conversion of Georgia that Andrew initiated.
