    Is that the trick to being rich? I might have to try it, seeing as I'm a poor college student. :wink: lol

    I don't think it is the trick, because my czech friends make it every year and for some reason they aren't rich either! :lol: :wink:

    That's a wonderful tradition. I'm glad I found this site. Being Czech-American I can try to reconnect with my heritage. We've lost so much of it over the years. Thanks.

    Jackie Girl, I see you are in Illinois. Are you close to Chicago? If so, there are many ways you can reconnect with your heritage. Here's a website for starters:

    Thank you for the link! It's great. I'm originally from the Chicago suburbs but now live close to the Kentucky boarder. For New Year's eve I drove 400 miles to eat at a small Czech restaurant in Riverside, IL near Chicago.

    Illinois' primary Czeck population is located in the towns of Riverside, Brookfield and Berwyn. Unfortunately, many of the older people have lost the language and the traditions. I'm grateful for the links - and updates on festivals!

    Well that's too bad you've moved. I know the Riverside restaurant, we've eaten there. Well if you go to the festivals, perhaps we might run into each other. We go to many of them. Also, perhaps the older generation has forgotten a lot of the traditions, however, there are a lot of younger Czechs living in Chicago. Many that came to the US in the last 5-10 years.
