Christmas in Serbia

On Christmas Eve (called ‘Badnji dan’ during the day and ‘Badnje veče’ after sunset), families gather and many people fast and don’t eat food that comes from animals. It is the last day of the Christmas fast. Christmas is a very religious holiday and most people go to the Christmas Services.

There are a lot of old Serbian traditions associated with the countryside, which have now lost their meaning because more people live in towns and cities. On the morning of Christmas Eve, the father of the family used to go to the forest to cut a young oak called the ‘Badnjak’ (Christmas Eve tree) but today people just buy one. The Badnjak is then burnt like a Yule Log.There are sometimes large bonfires outside churches where oak branches and Badnjak are burnt.

On Christmas Day the dawn is greeted with church bells ringing and sometimes firing guns into the air! The first person to enter a house on Christmas Day is called a polaznik and it’s thought to bring luck to the house and family. The polaznik is often re-arranged.

At Christmas a special kind of bread is eaten. It’s called ‘cesnica’ and is made in a round shape. Sometimes it’s made using some of the ‘strong water’. Each member of the family gets a piece (and the house does too). There is a coin hidden in it and whoever gets the coin will be particularly fortunate in the next year!
