Cutting the Slava Bread in Serbia Feb 13th 2019
From EUROPEA School “Sumatovac” in Aleksinac, Serbia
On Sunday January 27th 2019 we had a great reason to be in school. It was Saint Sava’s Day !! Saint Sava is considered to be the patron saint of education and all the schools in Serbia celebrate this day.
Known as The Enlightener, he was one of the most important figures of Serbian history. On that day, numerous plays are organized around educational institutions with the ceremony of cutting the Slava Bread, singing the Hymn to Saint Sava and dancing the Serbian folk dance called “kolo” !!
Always happy to share elements of Serbian culture with you !!
