Мир Божији, Христос се роди!
Let Christmas be happy and blessed to all Orthodox Christians celebrating Christmas on the Julian calendar!

The badnjak (Cyrillic: бадњак, Serbian pronunciation: [bǎdɲaːk]), is a tree branch or young tree brought into the house and placed on the fire on the evening of Christmas Eve, a central tradition in Serbian Christmas celebrations. The tree from which the badnjak is cut, preferably a young and straight Austrian oak, is ceremonially felled early on the morning of Christmas Eve. The felling, preparation, bringing in, and laying on the fire, are surrounded by elaborate rituals, with many regional variations. The burning of the log is accompanied by prayers that the coming year brings food, happiness, love, luck, and riches. The log burns on throughout Christmas Day, when the first visitor strikes it with a poker or a branch to make sparks fly, while wishing that the family's happiness and prosperity be as abundant as the sparks:

How many sparks, that much happiness in this house.
How many sparks, that much money in the household head's pocket.
How many sparks, that many sheep in the pen.
How many sparks, that many pigs and lambs.
How many sparks, that many geese and chickens,
and most of all, health and joy.

A great picture, Petar. When we lived in Alaska, we worshiped with the Orthodox, I remember the great loaves of bread they made and blessed at Easter time.
