Christmas during the WW2 in Romania

Hello! My name is Catalina, I am in the 5th form at Humoreni School, Romania.

I went to my grandmother and asked her how people celebrated Christmas during the Second World War. My grandmother told me: “We could not celebrate Christmas in those times because there were lots of soldiers walking from house to house. You could not visit your relatives. We couldn’t make our traditional “cozonac” (Christmas bread with a variety of fillings) because we didn’t have flour.  We had to prepare dishes from potatoes, nettles and beans; that’s all we had.”

Now we have many things and my opinion is that we have to appreciate everything we have.
