Overview of festivals and celebrations in Croatia
Croatia is a deeply religious country. Therefore, holidays associated with religion, enjoy a special attitude. The main holiday of the Catholic world of Croatia is Easter. Its date is not fixed and, every year, it changes. The next day after Easter, Monday, is a non-working day, which speaks of the special importance of the holiday for the Croats. Women bake cakes and serve festive tables; relatives give each other memorable gifts. There are solemn church processions and gastronomic fairs on the streets of many cities. Another spectacular religious holiday is the feast of the Divine body and blood. It’s taking place on the 54th day after Easter. On this day, churches also organize solemn processions with holy gifts through the streets of the city or around churches. On December 25, Croatia, like other Catholic countries, celebrates Christmas. This holiday is considered a family one. On the Christmas Eve, the whole family gathers at a big table. The main dish of the feast is baked carp. There must be different sweets on the festive Christmas table. Already in early December, there are fairs in the central areas of the cities. There, you can buy small souvenirs and gifts for the holiday. The fairs are colorful. They also feature theatrical performances and folk festivals. It is customary to discuss plans for the next year. After dinner, the Croats often go to the temples for Christmas services. The New Year celebration in Croatia is also accompanied by mass festivities. It is customary to gather in the central squares where the best view of the festive salute opens.
