I think the Czech Republic Christmas traditions are interesting because they use branches from cherry trees to predict the future. They put them in a warm corner of their house and hope they blossom before Christmas Day. In the Czech Republic, holiday celebrations begin four weeks before Christmas day. They have recently added a Christmas tree to their traditions. They decorate the tree with fruit ornaments because real fruit is a rare treat in the winter in the Czech Republic. St. Nicholas visits each village on the 6th of December. He is accompanied by a devil and an angel, which represents good and evil. In the Czech Republic, you gather with your family for the three days from December 24th to the 26th.
