Happy holiday season 2021

Happy holiday season 2021 from the Czech & Slovak Ed. Center and Museum in Omaha, NE

Stastne svatky

I would like to wish everyone a very happy holiday season 2021. To me, it’s a special time of the year to be cherished as we make our preparations for Christmas while remembering our loved ones.

I always get homesick around the first Sunday of Advent, when I realize that the season is upon us, as the altar boys light the first purple candle on the wreath at the church.

It reminds me that this busy season is not just about shopping and holiday parties, but it’s a time to spend with the family. That’s why I decided to bake this year with our granddaughter Josephine Palova. Other than traditional Czech Christmas cookies, we will make the famous Czech dessert called “rakvicka.”

Mom Ella got me the molds and the recipe for this mouth-watering dessert filled with whipped cream. If you are interested email us, and I will share it in my holiday series blog posts.

Mom also made kolache for us for Thanksgiving that I usually freeze, and put them on the Christmas Eve table.

If you are as nostalgic as I am browse through the museum’s Christmas selection and buy yourself or a friend a Czech gift that will benefit the museum, and your spirit as well.
