Srećan Božić (SREH-chan BAW-zheech) or Merry Christmas to Serbian Orthodox Christians. According to the Julian calendar, the Nativity of Christ is celebrated on Jan. 7.

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!
