捷克的圣诞节:扔鞋看运气

Czech: tell one’s fortune by throwing a shoe

在圣诞节这天,捷克的未婚女性要进行一种仪式,看看来年自己能不能找到另一半。女性背朝屋子大门,向后扔出一只鞋,如果鞋跟指向大门,那么来年她还是单身;如果鞋尖指着大门,那么她就要准备庆祝自己的好运气了。

On the Christmas Day, single women in Czech would undertake a ritual to see whether they would get their better half in the coming year. According to the practice, a woman stands back to door and throw a shoe over her shoulder; if the heel points to the door when the shoe lands on the floor, it indicates that she would still be single in the coming year; if the toe cap points to the door, she should celebrate for her good luck immediately.

保加利亚人的圣诞习俗是去看奶奶和外婆,全家聚在一起,花一天时间做9道菜。到了晚上,家里最年长的人烧香驱邪,全家人手拉手唱主祷文。

The Bulgarians would go to see their grandmas on the Christmas Eve. All family members would spend the whole day preparing 9 dishes together.
