Yule Log

Yule Log In Montenegro The Christmas celebration begins on Christmas Eve, when traditional yule log (badnjak) is brought to the family hearth. This log is cut by the male head of the household and the older son, while the table is being set for the Christmas Eve Fast supper (Posna Veccera). The log is cut into three pieces, representing the Holy Trinity, and each piece is brought into the house by the father. A son, or some other member of the Family receives each piece and places it on the fire.
