Czech Christmas dinner would consist of nine courses, including carp, potato salad, soup, bread and honey. 
There are over a hundred different recipes to prepare carp. Carp is raised in manmade ponds and then sold
on the streets from large tubs in town squares a few days prior to Christmas. This will not occur at any other time
during the year. Many families purchase carp early and place the carp as a temporary pet for their children,
in the family bath tub before serving it as Christmas dinner.

Merry Christmas !!!
