Happy New Old New Year~~From All of Us on the Blog Class. Most of us in the States are so isolated from the rest of the World by location. I just do not know about other Countries and the customs (and food) of the People. Well, tonight is New Year's Eve, so we are going to take a little video trip to Serbia to see for ourselves! I Hope in this new Age of Spiritual Growth, we will meet each other in friendship. I bring you the little birds from my garden today for Your Happy New Year. There is a blessing on each bird for You to take with you in your heart! Love to All-
Old New Year

Serbia is one of the religiously diverse countries of Europe, with an Eastern Orthodox majority, and Catholic and Islamic minority, among other smaller confessions. While formation of the nation-state and turbulent history of 19th and 20th century has left its traces on the religious landscape of the country; as of 2002, Vojvodina was 68.97% Orthodox, 19.11% Catholic and 3.55% Protestant, while Central Serbia and Belgrade regions were over 90% Orthodox Christian. Kosovo consists of an 89% Albanian Muslim majority.
Among the Eastern Orthodox Churches, the Serbian Orthodox Church is the largest in the country.
