The typical Czech Christmas for Czech people includes Christmas dinner with potato salad and fried carp. There are a lot of ponds in the Czech Republic and people enjoy watching fishing out the ponds. There are mostly multicultural Christmas markets with hot dogs and chips in the streets but always with tubs full of almost dead carps. People always wait in long queues and they are happy to take home "fresh" carp/carps and its heads for typical Czech fish soup for their Christmas dinner. I am sure the poor carps are not happy they are our symbol of typical Czech Christmas.
