Dear visitors of Serb Land of Montenegro, tonight (January 6, 2001) is Christmas Eve for Serbs and other Orthodox Christians who are celebrating the Birth of Christ according to the Julian Calendar. Therefore, please accept a Christmas message of King Nikola from 1912 as a Christmas present of Serb Land of Montenegro. The full King Nikola's speech in Serbian.

Christmas message of Montenegrin King Nikola to Montenegrin troops at the Skadar front, Christmas Eve, 1912:

Happy Christmas Eve of Bishop Danilo, my Montenegrins!

Happy Birth of Christ you are celebrating under the tent!

Happy Serb Christmas-log you are laying on the fire under the clear sky this year!

[Traditional Serb custom is the laying an oak log on the fire on Christmas Eve]
