Christmas Season: PF

Well, it is December and the Christmas season is well under way in Prague.  The Christmas Markets opened last weekend and the IWAP Christmas Bazaar, our favourite, is this Saturday.

While I was working on a new page for this site, Annual Events Calendar, I came across an explanation of an abbreviation that we saw everywhere and had us mightily confused our first years in Prague.

Czech Christmas Greeting PF

PF stands for pour féliciter, supposedly a French phrase but only used in the Czech language.  It translates to American as Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

P.S.  Check out the calendar although it is still a work in progress.
