We from ABC PRAGUE would like to wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope you liked the articles we tried to provide for you at our best. We look forward to many great years to come, in Prague, the city with an attitude.
What are the Czech Christmas traditions?
Slitting an apple – you cut and apple, and find out, whether the following year will be successful or not; If there is a star, it’s positive. If a cross, it’s negative.
You can also heat lead or tin, and pour it into cold water – the shape, which it takes, tells you about your future.
Of course we decorate trees, hand gifts and sing Christmas noels. Jingle bells of course exist in Czech language, so if you hum the tune, you should be OK. And if you are in Prague during Christmas, many go to church at midnight time, to ‘pulnocni’.
So again, Merry Xmas to you all!
