Orthodox Christians who follow the Julian calendar celebrate Christmas Eve Jan. 6. Serbians, Russians, Ukrainians, Romanians and some Slovaks and Slovenians will observe a special meatless meal tonight in preparation for the birth of Jesus. Bulgarians, who are primarily Orthodox Christians, follow the Gregorian calendar and, thus, celebrate Christmas Eve on Dec. 24 and Christmas Day on Dec. 25.
Here are some suggestions for a traditional meatless Serbian Christmas Eve Dinner
