Finally, Macedonian christmas! Macedonia Daily wishes you a happy christmas and a great time celebrating it! Christmas is widely celebrated all over Macedonia. In Skopje for example the 18th traditional Christmas Eve festivity took place outside St. Kliment Ohridski Cathedral. This event to become traditional in the Macedonian capital is becoming a reality. 
Each year, thousands of Macedonian citizens attend this celebration, the peak of which is the welcoming of the Christmas godfather with a blessing from the Macedonian church head. Like every year, free brandy, communion, and Christmas Eve oak tree branches were given away outside the cathedral, while the ceremony began with a Christmas Eve hymn and with the committee hoisting the Christmas Eve flag.

We wish you a merry christmas!! 
Hristos se rodi! Navistina se rodi!!
