Happy New Year 2015! / Stastny Novy Rok 2015!

imageOn Silvestr (the last day of the year) the Czechs usually bake Vanocka and put a coin in the dough to see who will get it in his slice and therefore will be rich the next year. Since any of my family members actually don’t like Vanocka (!!!) what do you think is the probability that I will end up with the penny? And a few extra pounds??

Wishing you a very happy and  peaceful  New Year 2015 🙂

    Hi, well I’m Czech and we never made Vanocka on Silvestr, we always made it for Christmas.
    Also we never put any coins in it. Different regions, different customs? I’m from East Bohemia.
    Happy 2015!

    Probably! People also do it on New Year’s. You know, it’s just another excuse to bake this delicious sweet bread 😉

    In my American family, this bread was made all year round and was called “houska” instead of “vánočka”. I had a bit of disorientation in CZ, when I found that “houska” meant something else.
