Czech Advent and other pre-Christmas traditions in Czechia (Podcast about Czech culture)

Ahoj! Hello! Today it will be slightly different episode – the advent season is here and if you are living in the Czech Republic or if you are interested in Czech culture, you should know about the traditions that are usually taking place in the time of 4 weeks (Sundays) before Christmas.

In todays episode I’ll be talking about the Christmas Wrath, St. Nicholas, Christmas markets, Czech Christmas cookies, Peace Light of Bethlehem and other tiny peaces of Czech culture that are related to the pre-Christmas time.

It was obviously not that easy to get the illustration pictures for these in the current situation but thanks to the help of my friends (special thanks goes to Lucka, Hanka and Jirka :-)), I was able to get together photos from Czechia, Germany and Austria.

I hope that you will enjoy the podcast!

I really like Czech traditions, except for 2, says Richard Savage, Briton living in Czechia

Richard Savage is an English lecturer, musician, and voice artist, who has been living in the Czech Republic for almost 20 years. 

I couldn’t resist to ask him some crucial Czech questions like:

What did he know about Czechia before moving here?

Was he afraid to move to a post-communistic country?

How does he handle black Czech humor?

What does he think about Czech traditions?

What about Jára Cimrman?

And some more. And Richard was kind to answer them all 😀

Enjoy!
