Today is Serbian—or, put better, Orthodox—Christmas. Like many other Christian offshoots, the celebration is on Christmas Eve, with fish soup (and my 6-hour Neely’s Wet BBQ ribs, as well as my attempts to make James Bond’s Vesper Martinis for the family) and here, the laying of hay and sticks all around the house. (I suppose this is an approximation of the manger, but I haven’t gotten a straight answer on that yet.)
