Česnica

Back | Home | Up | Next


Česnica is a kind of soda bread made on Christmas morning, in Serbian tradition. A solid silver coin along with wood and a bean for health and good luck is placed into the bread. During the Christmas Breakfast (being the most important meal of Christmas in Serbian tradition) family members break the česnica and the one who finds the coin in the piece of bread is considered to be most fortunate that year; however, the head of the family has to buy the coin so it stays in the house. Sometimes, there are other things put in česnica, like piece of badnjak, also called the Yule Log – good luck, hazelnut – health, plum – traveling, etc.
