Czech people celebrate most of the common European holidays, but we of course have some specific ones. Also, there are some unique traditions connected to the wide-known feasts.
The new year starts with a national holiday called the New Year, or the Day of the Renewal of the Independent Czech State. It is held on the 1st of January and it remembers the establishment of the Czech Republic. On the 1st of January 1993 Czechoslovakia broke up and two new states – the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic were formed.
