Zora Pergl Blanche-Cary

It is with great sadness that we pass on to you the information that our dear friend Zora Blanche Pergl-Cary passed away suddenly and unexpectedly from heart failure and other complications. Zora was an American with a Czech heart. She really loved her heritage and many people of both Czech and Slovak origin loved her bubbling personality and her passion for Czech culture, music, language, cuisine and more. Everybody loved her cute newsletter that she creatively named The Dumpling Newsletter.

Slovak Movies Online (Slovenske Filmy Pres Internet)

Fontana pre Zuzanu

One of our latest posts in December was about Czech films online. Our article today is about Slovak movies over the Internet. Rental fees are very similar to Czech TV prices, but you can only rent each movie just for one day and not for one week. You can, however, watch some titles in the Slovak language and some are even free. A list of known Slovak titles includes, for example, Fontana pre Zuzanu, Modre z neba and so on.

All information about the service and movies for rent can be found at the end of our article.

Enjoy!

Czech Movies Online (Ceske Filmy Pres Internet)

Arabela

Czech and Slovak televisions did not have many channels during communism. That did not matter during the Christmas season because they played fairy tales and family movies all day long. Many Czechs and Slovaks abroad probably know: Arabela, Pan Tau, Letajici Cestmir, O Sipkove Ruzence, Princezna ze Mlejna and more. Today all these movies are sold back in the Czech Republic and Slovakia for cheap but you still have to deal with shipping costs and delays during busy holiday seasons. Now you don’t have to.

Christmas Chocolate Collections – Decoration or Delicacy? (Vanocni Cokoladove Kolekce – Dekorace nebo Pochoutka?)

Clanek v CESTINE dole (Kliknete na “Read the rest …”)

*** Czech and Slovak Food & Much More *** LINKS BELOW

*** Ceske a Slovenske Jidlo a Mnohem Vice *** ODKAZY DOLE

 

It has already been a tradition for many years that every Czech and Slovak family buys a “Christmas Chocolate Collection” (CCC) or “Christmas Set,” with which they decorate their Christmas trees. It is a colorful pallet of figurines and other decorative ornaments made of chocolate. Some of them are hollow and others have a creamy filling (vanilla, nuts, caramel, milk, punch, and more). The sets can be either in milk, dark or white chocolate or a mix of all of them. Each candy is wrapped in a shiny paper with colorful details.

 

Many people don’t keep their CCC on their trees for a long time. They are so delicious that they become a target of adult or child “thieves.” Some of these thieves are so brilliant that they manage to remove the candy and keep the wrapping expanded looking like there is still something in there. They can also fill it with something else to give it the weight and form back. As you can imagine, Czech and Slovak Christmas can be about more than just giving and receiving. This is just a fun part of this wonderful holiday.

 

If you miss this delicious treat or other Czech and Slovak sweets, please visit our partner websites below. They offer more than just traditional Czech and Slovak food. They became our partners about two months ago and we did not have a chance to introduce them to you yet. We hope, however, that their links in our sidebar caught your eyes and you have visited their sites already.
