A Very Merry Prague Christmas

December 19th, 2013 | Filed under: helpful hints Holiday traditions news | Posted by Elf jennifer

Veselé Vánoce! This is “Merry Christmas” in Czech. In the Czech Republic, Christmas is celebrated a little differently with the main celebration being dinner on Christmas Eve. An old tradition is to fast before the feast in hopes to see a vision of “the golden pig” before the meal; this means good luck! Another important superstition of Christmas Eve dinner, which demonstrates the power of family and togetherness, is that no one can get up during the meal, this will bring bad luck and death to the family, instead everyone rises simultaneously. Many families after dinner, proceed to their church and participate in midnight mass.
