Merry Christmas! Craciun Fericit!



The Nativity also called Christmas, is one of the Great Feasts of the Orthodox Church, celebrated on December 25
Romanian tradition calls for children to go out with triangles from house to house on Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve and Epiphany Eve, and sing the corresponding folk carols. There are separate carols for each of the three great feasts, referring respectively to the Nativity, to St. Basil and the New Year, and to the Baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan, along with wishes for the household.
Longer carols follow a more or less standard format: they begin by exalting the relevant religious feast, then proceed to offer praises for the lord and lady of the house, their children, the household and its personnel, and usually conclude with a polite request for a treat, and a promise to come back next year for more well-wishing.

Crăciun fericit , Daliana ! Şi, dacă cineva îmbrăcat în roşu te răpeşte şi te închide într-un sac, nu te îngrijora...probabil , cineva i-a cerut lui Moş Crăciun un set de fotografii spectaculoase !

It appears that I arrived too late for Christmas Eve carols, but I will make it a point to arrive early for New Year's Eve.

Again, I will mention how much I enjoy your posts which reveal a bit of Romanian history, traditions and customs, Daliana.

And, I send wishes for a Christmas Day filled with the sights and sounds of happiness and contentment to you and to your family, Daliana. May a feeling of warmth and serenity surround you.

Merry Christmas ....
