Serbian Yule Log or Badnjak Burning on Orthodox Christmas Eve
© 2010 Barbara Rolek licensed to About.com, Inc.
After the rigors of fasting -- no meat, eggs, milk, butter, cheese -- for Advent, Serbs and other Eastern Europeans who follow the Julian calendar get to party hearty with a veritable feast. That usually means roast pork, sarma, cevapcici, to name a few, and lots of glorious Serbian desserts.
Merry Christmas all over again!
