The Joy of a Slovak Christmas:

Traditions, Rituals, Customs, and Folklore

A booklet by Trude Check-Tuhy

Celebration answers the human need to joyfully observe the many passages occurring during our earthly sojourn. This joyous celebrating is a need of all ages, from the youngest to the eldest, to that "child" which lives in each of us.

The rituals observed by our parents transmitted their values to us. As we re-enact these rituals, we, in turn, transmit them to the next generation. We play the same music, we sing the same songs, we eat the same foods our forefathers did - because itís fun - and because it helps us reaffirm our roots.

This booklet is a compilation of the Slovak customs celebrated by my family and includes recipes and songs.
