Since christmas start 24th in Slovakia I wish you all a Merry Christmas, wish you folks a lot of love, joy and happiness, and May the good times and treasures of the present become the golden memories. as I said christmas start 24th here,


Christmas gifts in CZ/SK are brought today 24th right after the dinner. Family gifts are put under the Christmas Tree. A common tradition is that the children have to leave the room when the presents are being brought by "ježiško" (Baby Jesus). When they are there a bell is rung. The children then run to the Christmas Tree to try and see the Baby Jesus but they always narrowly miss him! Then the present are opened. Most people open their presents after the main Christmas meal, although some open them before they eat!


so once again Mery Christmas :)

Merry Christmas/nice holidays and everything to you all too :p 


I doubt we'll really celebrate anything here since just yesterday we buried my grandma, so I have no idea how that's gonna go in the next few days (not in the most festive mood ever). Usually it's a matter of the family coming together in the house of someone (like this year my aunt, last year our house, next year maybe another uncle/aunt and so on), having some sort of dinner and a good time :p 


We don't really do the whole presents thing here, just sometimes here at home we put a present under the tree if we happened to come across something in a shop, but it's not an obligation or a tradition or something.

By the way, Christmas here is 25 and 26 December, which are simply called 'First/Second Christmas Day' :p 


I believe the evening of 24 December is called 'Christmas evening' and some people have a large dinner with their family at home. Others don't, it's really all up to you, there is no absolute 'tradition' :d 


I just find it annoying that there's basically no sports at all for 3 days. Apart from some football, but who cares about club football.
