Christmas in Serbia

Well, Christmastime is really here and so is my family!  This is a super rare treat to have my parents AND one of my sisters and her family of three kids here to open gifts and play with us all the way through Christmas!

I'm off of social media for the week, which has been really refreshing and allowed me to be present for my family.

But I had to post a quick one about our "trip" to Serbia today at lunchtime for our Christmas Around the World celebrations.

In Serbia, they eat "cesnica" which is a round loaf of bread with a silver coin baked inside.  Before the loaf is cut and served, everyone touches it.  The person who received the slice containing the coin will have good luck until next Christmas!

Guess who got the coin??

Yours truly!  And I'm already enjoying the best of luck of all, having my family around me!

Merry Christmas...or (in Serbian) Sretan Bozic!!

    I put my annual Christmas story up on the blog, but it sounds like you may be too busy with "the real thing" to read it. So Merry Christmas to all of you!
