    Yeah I am sad that people are starting to say happy holidays because it is politically correct. I don't understand the logic, yes I know that not everyone celebrates Christmas but it is me wishing good will and my culture to another. Just as if some other culture shared a part of their self I would not reject it. When I say Merry Christmas I am not asking the other person to celebrate it, I am just wishing them good tidings from my cultural standpoint- End Rant.

    Country- Murica!
    Language- Missourian, we say things differently....
    Christmas Greeting- Merry Christmas!
    Tradition- Do not have any traditions to speak of, it is just my mom and I so we generally do not celebrate Christmas lol. This year though we been baking which is nice :)!

    Hi guys. I am from Serbia, and my language is Serbian. Mayority of Serbs are Orthodox Christian and we celebrate Christmas on January 7th. Christmas is celebrated for 3 days. It is custom that people during that 3 days great each other with: "MIR BOZIJI HRISTOS SE RODI", and reply is "VAISTINU SE RODI".
    Translation (maybe not really accurate, pls forgive me) is:
    -MIR BOZIJI HRISTOS SE RODI -> Peace of God, Christ is born
    -VAISTINU SE RODI -> He is trully born.
    Some people just say Srecan Bozic (Merry Christmas) but great mayoriti use first greeting.

    Some customs and holidays.
    On 3rd, 2nd and 1st Sunday before Christmas, we celebrate Detinci (Dete/Child), Materice (Mater/Mother) and Oci (Oci/Fathers) respectively.
    Custom is that on Detinci children are "tied" (simbolicly) and can be "freed" if they offer (simbolic) gifts to their parents.
    In same manner children "tie" their mothers on 2nd Sunday, and their fathers on 1st Sunday before Christmas.
    We usually use thin string or scarf and sometimes just a hug as tie. Those customs are ment to develop compation, harmony and respect between family members.

    On day before christmas people cut special kind of tree that it is called Badnjak. Badnjak should be burned on night before Christmas and simbolize wood that Sent Joseph used to start fire in cold cave where Jesus was born and also wood from his cross. People also make roast (lamb, pig or turkey and even goose) and it will be eaten on Christmas day. Dineer should be made from non animal ingredients (with exception of dried fish), and its usually beans, dried fruits and other vegetables. Beneath the dining table straw should be placed, and candies should be placed in it. Children than making chicken sounds search for candies. The house is decorated in that way to simbolize cave where Jesus was born.

    On Christmas day head of family goes to church for Christams liturgy. Bells ring on all Orthodox temples. Food shouldn't be removed from table for 3 days, instead it should be added. It is believed that one should pay all of his debts if any before Christmas, and to start doing something that was difficult for him/her during past year.

    One custom that is only present with Serbs is person called Polozajnik. Polozajnik should be the first person that enters house on Christmas. When he enters he should poke fire so that sparks are created. Than he wish to his host that he gets as much happy moments as there are sparks in fire, as much coins as there are sparks, as much as baby animals as there are sparks but most of all good health and happiness. Polozajnik is simbol to Wise Man, who could realise the meaning of star that appeared in East after Jesus was born, and and it is preferably to be child or person dear to the family.

    I saw that someone above is sad that people are saying Happy Holidays. Well I say that to people in this game, but mainly because I dont know if they are religious or not or maybe they are not Christians at all, and I don't wanna offend anyone. And New Year is near and people celebrate it regardles of religion, so I wish all of you have happy holidays and that you celebrate tham in happiness and good health, and that you wait the next holidays in same fashion.

    Cheers!

    Merry Christmas! :D Though I am in the US of A. If you want to be "politically correct", it is "Happy Holidays", but COME ON! I ain't some sap. I'm not religious, but I celebrate Christmas more for the "commercial" side. LOL. I mean the gift-giving custom seems to be universally shared.

    Tradition is to chit-chat with what's left of the family, exchange gifts Christmas Morning, and try our best to take the day off. There is some decoration before the "big day", but how much decoration depends on the budget of time as well as money. This year, my entire family has been so busy and stressed, we barely put up the tree AT ALL!

    And the language is American English. :D
