Badnjak
In Serbian tradition бадњак [bǎdɲaːk] is a tree branch or young tree brought into the house and placed on the fire. This would be preformed, as in other similar European traditions, to ensure prosperity and abundance to the household. In the morning the men would go to cut down the tree. If it is not cut down after the third blow of the axe, then it must be pulled and twisted until its trunk breaks. The resulting badnjak has a so-called "beard". The family would bring offerings to the tree referring to it as "cousin", "old one" and "merrymaker". In the evening it would be laid on the fire to burn throughout the night. This custom is originally connected to the winter solstice and nowadays practiced on Christmas Eve. Here tree represents the old and dying spirit of vegetation which is ritually burned in the longest night of the year so it could be reborn the next morning and thrive with the growing Sun.

Hallo Dusane,

ljepe slike imas, bogotovo umjetnost nase stare mytologije. Nazalost nas narod nema puno obrazovane za ove stare stvari, ili jedna manjina. Vidim isto da imas nationalisticke tendenzije. Mislim da to  nema nista veze sa slavenskoj mytologij, cak je to jedna farce. Niko u svjetu a pogotovo na balkanu nemore reci dje i sta je njegov rod, samo sumljati moremo, a bogotovo ovaj novi "nationalizam" samo radja nemir i maglu u glavi ljudi.

Sve naj bolje sa novu godinu i bozic, pozdrav drug Armin

Zdravo Armine,

Hvala na lepim rečima. Trudim se približiti našu mitologiju ljudima koliko sam u mogućnosti. Da, može se u par mojih radova videti trag nacionalizama, ili ja bih radije rekao rodoljublja. Međutim ne vidim ništa loše u tome, ja samo ističem određene odlike naroda u kom sam rođen. A rodoljublje je po prirodi stvari vezano za rodnu veru, kada naučimo pšoštovati svoje, tek tada možemo poštovati tuđe. Nikada sa moje strane nje došla ni trunka tzv. "radikalnog nacionalizma" odnosno šovinizma, nikada druge nisam nipodaštavao niti ružio.

I tebi sve najbolje u novoj godini!
Slava bogovima, slava precima!

How connected to Slavic mythology is polish mythology? I've been doing some research and I see a lot of different elements crossing over from each.

By the Polish mythology we indicate version of Slavic mythology that is developed among Poles. So it is just the local version of the Slavic ornithology.

Poles share same creatures, believes and gods as other Slavs.
