A Special Evening

 

.

We had a wonderful Christmas Party on Christmas Eve night. Pennsylvania even had it snow to make it a white Christmas! It was great to be surrounded by new family and friends and eat and drink too much. The kids were so excited and screaming and running around like crazy.

We prepared a traditional Christmas Eve Slovak meal with all the traditions and dishes. The meal featured seven dishes, none of which is meat. We made salmon patties, pirohi, oplotki, lentils, etc. Some of the traditions include putting straw under the table cloth, locking all the doors of the home, and setting an extra place setting at the table.

It was a very special evening for all of us in many ways! Merry Christmas!
