It would be very hard to get an invite, since you are not suppose to invite people.  People just show up and they are to welcome every guest to their house.   Tongue  Obviously this is the "ideal", but some still practice it.

My family still practices the open door policy.  I do it at school as well.  I just keep my door open and anyone who would like to stop by and venerate the Icon of my patron saint can do so and get some nice Serbian hospitality. 

There is a church service attached to the event where the priest blesses a bread and koliva, for the living and the dead members of the family. 

But most of it is the party.  In its largest sense you roast a pig and lamb and you have drinks enough to feed a regular size villiage.  That's pretty standard.  It all depends on the family traditions, what area of Serbia you're from, and who your Patron Saint is (Slava). 

Mine is St. Luke the Evangalist, so on the Old Calander that's October 31st.  So its comming up.  It usually takes me around 3 weeks to plan it, and at least a week to make the bread.  Liquer costs are....pretty high.  Last year I ran out of liquer in 2 hours...and I stock it pretty well...

So this should give you a general idea of what its all about.  Googling it would be helpful too. 

As for your friend that doesn't allow other people in...you always have your xenophobes, but most Serbian people are open to anyone comming as long as you let them know.  As for me, I don't care...you could be a bum off the streets and i'll feed you.  That's what its all about...

 as Friul said, your actually not supposed to invite people to your slava,traditonally you just let anyone in that comes to your door. And its not hard, its just that only your close non-serb friends would even be interested. I told you, I've had my Ukranian friend come to mine twice, and my other serbian friends. ha...I guess he's sort of a "Slava crasher".

Uh-huh - and you didn't even save me some.  I was shocked (not that I'd hold a grudge... I'm just going to remember this as long as you Serbs would... FOREVER).

With as long as this thread has become--remember, this is the thread that never ends--I wouldn't be surprised that a lot of things have made their way back more than a couple of times.  'Sides that, I'm too lazy to search back through 2500+ posts just to find a post where some song was referenced before.

Hhmm...multiple jokes about how 'good' and 'New England' cannot possibly be in the same sentence run through my mind...

..but that would demean places that, by a cruel twist of fate, must share a location close to Beantown.

Dude - everywhere!  Drive I-93 or I-95 up into New Hampshire and the drives are fantastic!  Go down to Rhode Island to the town with all the mansions - I hear the mix of the changing leaves and the old mansions is quite a sight.

Agreed.  We both liked Portsmouth, right?  A very nice town - and the portion of Maine that is right across the border there is also quite nice.

Portsmouth is great, and full of great people!

I've always liked Maine, and I'd like to visit Vermont as well as the rest of New Hampshire. However, Boston overshadows all of New England like the odor of a factory pig farm in an otherwise pleasant rural environment, reminding all of Boston's quasi-infernal presence.

You think the Bronx Bombers will make it past two of the top 3 Cy Young candidates?  Cause that's what the Indians will throw at them in their series... I like the Indians' chances (even though they went 0-6 against NY this season).  If the Bombers want to win, they will have to win 1 or 2 games in Cleveland against a pair of pitchers who each won 19 games, each one in the top 5 in ERA in the AL, and one (CC Sabathia) who led the league in Innings pitched (and still has lots of gas in the tank).

The Yankees need to be cheering for the Sox to get the best record, 'cause if the Indians throw Sabathia and Fausto on the extended schedule - which means regular rest, I don't think they (NY) can win.
