- Preparation for Christmas includes a lot of activities in housework – cleaning of the house, baking biscuits, buying presents and decorating the Christmas trees. - One of main parts on Christmas Eve is special Czech Christmas dinner for the whole family (parents, children, eventually grandparents) before meeting around the Christmas tree.
The national Czech Christmas dinner is fried fish or schnitzel, potatoe salad, and fish soup. Next symbol for Christmas is Christmas tree. This is typical Czech X-mas tree.
After dinner Baby Jesus comes and brings presents under the Christmas tree. Czech children don´t have Santa Claus, we have Baby Jesus.
We usually spend this day at home, children play with new toys, families watch fairy tales, eat cookies and enjoy this time.
We visit grandparents and our friends, give them presents and spend time with them.
