Settle down on the couch, it’s time for a dose of Czech fairytales

For young as well as old, pohádky (fairytales) are an integral part of the Czech Christmas holidays. In a time honored tradition, both classic and new Czech fairytales are played on television in the week leading up to Christmas and continuing to run through New Year’s Day. Watching Tři oříšky pro Popelku (Three Nuts for Cinderella, 1973) with a plate of Christmas cukroví(sweets) in reach is a tradition that rivals that of partaking of the Christmas carp.
