Prague, Czech Republic was such a treat. Check out Wenceslas Square in Prague (Praha) from our awesome 2012 Prague Family Visit

Duke of Bohemia = Wenceslas (Czech Republic). Born c. 907-935.

December 26 is the Feast of Stephen in the Christian World. He was a Christian martyr in Jerusalem. When we added our figurine of Wenceslas to our travel figurine repertoire, he began to don our mantel on December 26 because of the song “Good King Wenceslas” where Wenceslas helps the poor man without fuel in the winter snow on the Feast of Stephen.

Enjoy.
