From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Slava (lit. "celebration"; Serbian Cyrillic: Слава), also called Krsna Slava (Крсна Слава, "christened Slava") and Krsno ime (Крсно име, "christened name"), is a Serbian Orthodox church tradition of the ritual glorification of one's family's patron saint among Serbs. The family celebrates the Slava annually on the saint's feast day.
Traditional foods that are prepared on feasts are: "Slavski kolač" (славски колач) and "koljivo" (кољиво). "Slavski kolač" literally means "the Slava cake".
