Slovenian Traditional Christmas Choir Carols
Slovenes do love two major celebrations in the year: Easter Season and of course: Christmas Holiday Season. It's the same for all Slovenian Descendants abroad, living already for centuries in different countries of the world. Slovenian traditions are already kept in honor since World War I, also in the North-Eastern part of Belgium, the Province of Limburg, where different Slovenian Communities are integrated in the local community. But they do organize every year different Slovenian events. Coming together they enjoy their folklore, culture, music. As Christmas means for me, "announcing and wishing to eachother love and peace", so you can understand, this is supported by our typical traditional Slovenian Christmas Carols. From childhood, everyone born in a Slovenian family, learns all the Slovenian songs, mentioned in this lens.
I would say: "enjoy them too", meantime wishing to everybody a peaceful Merry Christmas.
And as we say in our own language:
Vesele Bozicne Praznike

Slovenes in Belgium
Slovenes live in Belgium (Limburg) already since World War I. They left Slovenia to find work, a job, a new life. Younger generations decided to stay in Belgium, but they kept on maintaining their language, habits, traditons, culture, music... Also for the Slovenian Choir "Slomsek", Christmas means something special. Slovenes do celebrate together with them Christmas, listening and enjoying traditional Slovenian Carols, like you can hear below in this lens.
