[DEH-tsem-bear]

Reminder:  In Slovak you don’t have to capitalize the first letter of month and day names!

And remember that the Slovak word for Christmas is…

Vianoce

(pronounced [VYAH-no-tseh]) The origin of the word is unclear, though it probably was borrowed from the German word for Christmas, Weinachten.  In case you missed it, you can see our video that explains some of the Christmas traditions here in Slovakia – simply follow this link.
