Hristos se Rodi

7 January was Orthodox Christmas (according to the Old Calendar), so we celebrated Christmas Eve the previous day.  This involved the traditional gathering of the badnjak (oak tree), then we went out to dinner at a local restaurant.    Then it was Christmas Day lunch at another restaurant, after exchanging Christmas greetings (Hristos se Rodi! Vaistinu se Rodi! – Christ is Born! Indeed He is Born!) and opening presents.    After lunch we watched a little of the Pier to Pub swim – although obviously challenging for those involved, it’s not really a great spectator sport!    However, the day was lovely, and the threatened sharks kept away!
