This cache has been archived.

fatfuzz: I've come to the realization that it is time to archive these caches. My original intent was to place a series of winter friendly caches for people to be able to enjoy around christmas. Hopefully by bringing along a non cacher and introduce them to caching. And I think that for winter caches they worked well. However, once the snow melted away, the river had other ideas. I have made several trips to these caches this spring and summer and each time at least some of the cache sites were under water.

Today I tried again and after I had replaced the first cache I realized that once again I couldn't get to some of the sites and that my intention for this series wasn't going to be realized even if I replaced all of the caches. Because even replacing them would not give a new cacher a pleasant experience with the way that the area currently is.

So I will be archiving these caches. Perhaps someone else will have another idea for caches in the area, but at least for what I had in mind for this series, I'm afraid that it no longer works. I'm sorry for those of you who wanted to complete the series and will no longer be able to. But I think that it is for the best.

Happy and safe caching.

Geocache Description:

A little history about the Second Day of Christmas(collected from Wikipedia).

 

St. Stephen's Day

 

St. Stephen's Day, or the Feast of St. Stephen, is a Christian saint's day to commemorate Saint Stephen, celebrated on 26 December in the Western Church and 27 December in the Eastern Church. Many Eastern Orthodox churches adhere to the Julian calendar and mark St. Stephen's Day on 27 December according to that calendar, which places it on 9 January of the Gregorian calendar used in secular contexts. It commemorates St. Stephen, the first Christian martyr or protomartyr.

It is an official public holiday in Alsace, Austria, Balearic Islands, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Catalonia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Montenegro, Moselle, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Sweden. The date is also a public holiday in those countries that celebrate Boxing Day on the day instead/as well, such as Canada.

Boxing Day

Boxing Day is traditionally the day following Christmas Day, when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts from their bosses[1] or employers, known as a "Christmas box". Today, Boxing Day is habitually known as the bank holiday that occurs on 26 December. It is observed in the United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and some other Commonwealth nations.
