Outside my window is frosty, icy and really quite chilly. By 3:30pm, its dark. It is that time of the year again.
The tree won’t go up until December 24th, as is the tradition here, and Jezicek (Jezicheck) will visit sometime before dinner the same day leaving presents under the tree for those of us that have been good. There is no early morning here on the 25th for parents of small excited children as it all takes place the evening before. By tradition, dinner should be battered and fried Carp (which by tradition, will have been swimming in the bathtub a couple of days) with potato salad. However, I detest Carp so hopefully, we will have something like Chicken or even Turkey – though Turkey is hard to get.
Holiday traditions are different in different countries and the Czech christmas is different. The TV stations have already started replying every Czech, Slovak, Russian, German and Austrian fairytale movie they can lay their hands on. The fairytale is a tradition here and I’m sure it makes for a good Holiday season for the TV stations as they don’t have to buy expensive blockbusters but rather simply replay over and over again the same old fairytale movies from last year, the year before that and on backwards to the pre-TV era. Thank God for Netflix which has now arrived here….
I will take some time off. Wind down a bit and come back refreshed for another year of CTRM magic. I hope you all do too and I hope you keep on coming back to CTRMCenter for all your news and information about the sector and its software. We have some good things planned for next year.
Meanwhile, whoever and wherever you are – thanks for stopping by our neck of the Net and have a wonderful Holiday!
