Time for new traditions

First of all merry Christmas to all the orthodox people out there. I hope you had a great time with your family and friends. We celebrate Christmas twice, on the 24th of December, cause we live in Austria and on the 6th of January since I am from Serbia, an orthodox country. All the years we paid more attention to the Christmas in December, but from this year one we decided to celebrate in January big too. This is of course because of Fabienne. Especially since she is going to be baptised this autumn in a Serbian church in Vienna. How do we celebrate? The Christmas Eve is on the 6th of January. That day you should fast – animal products are forbidden except fish, so we ate a lot of fish – and you should go to the church for a log called Badnjak that you bring home for luck and place under a desk. On the 7th you really eat a lot. If you want to know what the Serbian kitchen looks like, check out this blogpost. One of the things I like a lot is the home-baked bread, where you hide for example a coin or a clover leaf. If you find it while eating this means you are going to have luck or money the whole year.

I wish you all a great start into the week my lovelies and I’ll be back soon with a fashion & beauty blogpost.
