The Ukraine Santa carries wheat in his bag and a staff with a star representing the star followed by the Three Wise Men. In farming communities the head of the household now brings in a sheaf of wheat called the didukh which represents the importance of the ancient and rich wheat crops of Ukraine, the staff of life through the centuries. In city homes a few stalks of golden wheat in a vase are often used to decorate the table.
