Some lovely traditions that we did:
- Have an extra plate set in case an unexpected guest in need comes by the house at dinner time and/or for those who have left us.
- A very important part of Christmas is garlic. It's believed to give strength and protection so there was a bowl of sliced garlic on the table. Everyone bit into a slice.
- Honey is believed to guard against evil. Therefore, before our meal, we ate a waffer style bread with honey on it :)
- Another custom.. No one should ever get up from the table before dinner is finished. Doing this will bring bad luch and death in the family.
