Chichilaki - Georgian version of the Christmas
tree.

Are Georgians up on the latest fashion in
Christmas trees or not, the Chichilaki (a strait
hazelnut branch with curly fronds attached at the
top) is popular right now. Even before the Christ
period, Georgians have been making the
Georgian-style Christmas tree Chichilaki that was
believed to be the symbol of sun and tree of life.

Mekvle -In Georgia - the person who first comes
to the family after midnight and congratulates a
New Year.

It was a tradition that Mekvle must bring
Khoncha when hosting the family as a symbol of
happiness. The fruitful Khoncha symbolizes the
prosperous next year for the family, thats why it
was prepared with great care.

Most Georgians celebrate Christmas according to
Orthodox tradition on January 7, but the street
Christmas fairs and celebration events start
earlier in December. See more about Christmas
