Merry Christmas! Мир Божији, Христос се роди!

On the day before Christmas, Serbian tradition is to celebrate Badnje Vece, evening of the badnjak (yule log):

The fire's burning brighter than ever,
the straw is spread in front of the fire,
Christmas logs are laid on the fire crossways;
the rifles crack, and roasts on spits do turn,
the gusle plays, and the dancers sing,
grandfathers dance with their young grandchildren,
in the kolo join three generations,
it seems they're almost of the same age;
everything is filled with bright mirth and joy.
But what I like best of all, so help me,
one has to drink a toast to everything!

Petar II Petrović-Njegoš

We wish You all peaceful and happy holidays! Merry Christmas!
Мир Божији, Христос се роди!
