Advent Calendar 2010: Christmas Eve

December 24 – Christmas Eve

How did you, your family or your ancestors spend Christmas Eve?

[Note: This post originally ran during the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories in December 2009]

For Slovaks, Christmas Eve is more solemn than Christmas Day. It is a time for praising God and for being together with family. Here is a blog post from in which I describe how my family celebrated Christmas. Things have changed over the years since my grandparents and parents passed away, but I try to honor the Slovak traditions in my own home to the best of my ability.

Enjoy! Vesele Vianocé! (Merry Christmas!)
