HOLIDAYS AND TRADITIONS

Christmas in Romania

In Romania, Christmas and mid-winter celebrations last from 20th December to 7th January. The 20th is when people in Romania celebrate St. Ignatius's Day. It is traditional that if the family keep pigs, one is killed on this day. The meat from the pig is used in the Christmas meals.

FOOD AND BEVERAGES

Coffee in Romania

When in Romania, do as the Romanians do . . . and don't drink coffee in a coffee house ! Choose an aperitif instead. With your Dubonnet or Vermouth, you will also receive a portion of cheese, accompanied by olives, onions, tomatoes, radishes ‑ or perhaps meatballs, or various kinds of cold meats. Rinse it down with a good wine or tzuica.
