Happy New year friends!
Have you heard about the Czech “lentil “ tradition?
Traditionally lentils are eaten on New Year’s Day to bring $$$ and prosperity in upcoming year .... so eat up - dobrou chuť 🙂

Už máte "namočenou" čočku? Musíme uznat, že je to hezká tradice: na Nový rok se podává čočka, kdo si ji dá, budou se mu množit peníze. Anebo taky ne… 😉 Tradice bývají bez záruky úspěchu. Každopádně kdo si dá čočku na Nový rok a pak třeba taky jednou týdně po celý rok, neudělá chybu. Nevím, jak to bude s penězi, ale jeho tělo mu poděkuje... 😉

Mikuláš!!!!

MNOHOKRÁT DĚKUJI! Since 1620, many generations of Czechs, both at home as well as abroad, dreamt of the re-creation of an independent Czech statehood. That dream was fulfilled only three centuries later on October 28, 1918 with great help from Canada. Czech-Canadians enthusiastically supported the campaign for our national independence led by Professor Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk. They raised funds and enlisted in the Canadian and Czechoslovak armies. Moreover, with the United States neutral during the first years of the conflict, many Czech-Americans joined the Canadian army as well. More than 30,000 Czechs from North America fought in Europe. Czechs in North America just as in Europe looked up to the world-renowned Art Nouveau pioneer Alphonse Mucha as a national hero. Long before World War I, he began fighting for the rights of his nation by other means, through his art. He left his star career in Paris to tell the story of Czechs and other Slavic peoples in a series of monumental paintings, the Slav Epic. After Czechoslovakia was founded, he created the country’s first banknotes and stamps. On the occasion of the 10th birthday of the new country, Alphonse Mucha presented the completed Slav Epic as a gift to his nation. He did so together with Charles Crane, the sponsor of the cycle and Godfather of Czechoslovakia as he was called for his merits for the creation of the country. Unfortunately, the First Czechoslovak Republic did not live much beyond its 20th birthday. When N***s seized complete control of the Czech lands in 1939, the eighty-year-old Alphonse Mucha was among the first people interrogated by Gestapo. He passed away soon after that. Through his art, however, Alphose Mucha continues to live as one of our country’s best ambassadors. His Art Nouveau posters are among the most sought-after symbols of Paris at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The recent Slav Epic presentation in Tokyo became the world’s third most visited art exhibition of the year with more than 650,000 visitors. Od roku 1620 mnoho generací Čechů, doma i v zahraničí, snilo o obnovení samostatné české státnosti. Tento sen se stal skutečností až o tři sta let později dne 28. října 1918 za velké pomoci z Kanady. Čechokanaďané nadšeně podporovali kampaň za naši národní nezávislost vedenou profesorem Tomášem Garriguem Masarykem. Pořádali finanční sbírky a vstupovali do kanadské i československé armády. Spojené státy byly v prvních letech konfliktu neutrální, a tak se do kanadské armády přihlásilo i mnoho Čechoameričanů. Celkem v Evropě bojovalo více než 30 000 Čechů ze Severní Ameriky. Češi v Severní Americe stejně jako v Evropě vzhlíželi ke světově proslulému průkopníkovi secese Alfonsi Muchovi jako národnímu hrdinovi. Dlouho před 1. světovou válkou začal bojovat za práva svého národa jinými prostředky, svou uměleckou tvorbou. Opustil svou hvězdnou kariéru v Paříži, aby vyprávěl příběh českého národa a dalších Slovanů v sérii monumentálních obrazů, Slovanské epopeji. Po vzniku Československa vytvořil jeho první bankovky a poštovní známky. U příležitosti 10. vzniku republiky pak dokončenou Slovanskou epopej věnoval jako dar svému národu. Učinil tak společně s Charlesem Cranem, sponzorem cyklu a kmotrem Československa, když byl tento Američan označován pro své zásluhy o vznik našeho státu. Alfons Mucha si byl vědom narůstajícího nebezpečí ze strany fašistického Německa, přesto svou vlast neopustil. Když nacisté v roce 1939 získali úplnou kontrolu nad českými zeměmi, byl osmdesátiletý Alfons Mucha mezi prvními Čechy vyslýchanými gestapem. Zemřel zanedlouho poté. Přesto prostřednictvím své tvorby zůstává dodnes jedním z nejlepších ambasadorů naší země. Jeho secesní plakáty patří k nejvyhledávanějším symbolům Paříže přelomu 19. a 20. století. Nedávná prezentace Slovanské epopeje v Tokiu se stala s více než 650 000 návštěvníky třetí nejnavštěvovanější výstavou roku na světě.
