Nádherné Vánoce v Praze!

In Prague, Christmas Eve is the main celebration day, and nothing is open.  Consequently, we spent the day relaxing and resting before making our way to Old Town Square for an outdoor Christmas mass.  We arrived with lots of time to spare, so went for a walk along the quaint cobblestone alleys around Old Town Square.

We managed to find some hot wine and then come back in time to watch the Mass.  At least, we think it was a Mass…it was all in Czech and we didn’t recognise any carols, so who can really say!

I loved the conductor’s boots!

 

For Christmas Day, we had decided that instead of presents we would spend a bit more and stay in a beautiful apartment, and cook up a feast!  Our menu included croissants, eggs and sausages for breakfast, baked teriyaki salmon and mixed veges for lunch, and a blue cheese fondue for dinner. (Apricot balls and cheese ball featured in the snack department!)

 

Piako liked breakfast…

We had thought we would have lots of time spare but by the time we had spoken to all the members of both our families, both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day became really full! We managed to have time to watch “Love Actually”, play Settlers of Catan and of course drink mulled wine – we think this might be the only day of our trip where we didn’t leave the place we were staying. We really loved having a Christmas in Prague.

Merry Christmas from Prague!

    Looks like Piako had a really fun Christmas Day, and that he ate lots!! The food looks wonderful, but is it weird for a cow to snack on cheese balls?
    Christmas Even in Prague looks gorgeous, too. Happy Christmas to you both 🙂
