Badnji Dan – Christmas Eve

It’s Badnji Dan, Christmas Eve, according to our orthodox calendar, and I am going to go out with my brother and friend Miša to fell the young oak for tonight.

Grant, O God, that there be health and joy in this home, that our grain and grapevines yield well, that children be born healthy to us, that our property increase in the field, pen, and barn!

Those who want to read more about Serbian customs when celebrating the Nativity of our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ, are welcome to do so in a very standardized version on WikiPedia.
