Christmas is celebrated around the world and in each country the customs are different. And also in each family Christmas is celebrated differently.
First people clean their home even in Advent. Earlier they fasted too. When first star comes up on 24th December, Advent ended and Christmas started. At the moment the Christmas dinner could start. People ate warn lentils, peas potato and fish soup. After the dinner also sweet bread and sweets with tea or coffee were served.
In the Czech Republic there were many typical customs and traditions which were observed. The most popular are cutting apples, pouring melted lead or throw shoe.
The most important custom is to give a presents under Christmas tree.
In my family we first cleaned our house and bake the sweets. Last year on the Christmas Eve I didn’t eat any meal to see a gold pig. I and two my brothers visited our uncle and the others prepared the Christmas dinner consist of carp, fish soup and mashed potatoes.
After the dinner somebody ringed and we ran to living room. There were a Christmas tree and the presents. We sang Christmas carols and unwrapped our presents.
The next day we visited our grandparents.
Christmas is one of the best holidays in the year. And I very like them.
