Serbian Easter - Vaskrs i Uskrs

Happy Easter  = Srećan Uskrs with a new exercise based on this beautiful song:

Serbian Easter - Vaskrs & Uskrs

Ljudi Likujte 

Check out my previous Easter posts - Serbian Easter Tag.

Serbian Easter Songs 

The Cyrillic Version

Људи ликујте, народи чујте:
Христос воскресе,
Радост донесе!

Звезде играјте, горе певајте,
Христос воскресе,
Радост донесе!

Шуме шумите, ветри брујите:
Христос воскресе,
Радост донесе!

Мора гудите, звери ричите:
Христос воскресе,
Радост донесе!

Пчеле се ројте, а птице појте:
Христос воскресе,
Радост донесе!

Анђели стојте, песму утројте:
Христос воскресе,
Радост донесе!

Овчице беле, буд’те веселе:
Христос воскресе,
Радост донесе!

Мали славуји, нек’ песма бруји:
Христос воскресе,
Радост донесе!

Небо се снизи, земљу узвиси-
Христос воскресе,
Радост донесе!

Црвено јаје сваком се даје
Христос воскресе,
Радост донесе!

Слава ти Боже, све ти се може
Христос воскресе,
Радост донесе!

How to Say April Fool in Serbian?

How to Say April Fool in Serbian?

The most common way to celebrate April Fool's day in Serbia is to play a joke on someone and then, if they fall for it, say "Aprililili". Yes, after "April" you will add "i-li-li" :)

I guess that the most ambitious learners will enjoy watching an episode of "Državni posao" dedicated to this day:

I am aware that it is quite difficult to understand, but do try to persevere with it and answer these three general questions:

  1. Da li je Boškić naseo na šalu? (nasesti na šalu = to fall for the joke / to be taken in)
  2. Da li je Čvarkov stigao da prevari Torbicu ? (prevariti = to play a joke/trick/prank on someone)
  3. Kako je Torbica uspeo da se našali sa Čvarkovim*?
*Jedno pitanje iz gramatike, samo za moje učenike: zašto je "sa Čvarkovim" tačno, a ne "sa Čvarkovom"?

Serbian Holidays - Vidovdan

Vidovdan je  verski praznik koga praznuju Srpska pravoslavna crkva (15. juna po julijanskom kalendaru, 28. jun po gregorijanskom) i Bugarska pravoslavna crkva i jedan je od najvećih srpskih praznika. 

Vidovdan nije praznik radosti, ne igra se i ne peva, a ljudi se prisećaju palih ratnika i obilaze njihove grobove. 

Običaj zemljoradnika je da tog dana procenjuju kakva će biti letina. 

Veruje se da će najbolje roditi strana sa koje se prvo pojave oblaci. Ako nema oblaka, veruje se da godina neće biti rodna. U nekim delovima Srbije seljaci se trude da poljske radove završe pre Vidovdana. (izvor)

Easter Egg Hunt

SkolaSrpskog.com Easter Egg Hunt finished on Tuesday. Congratulations to the winners and many thanks to everyone for joining ! It wasn't easy  to find an egg and then to record an answer in Serbian. All the members of Learn Serbian Podcast FaceBook group were able to follow this exciting hunt. I'm publishing the results now ... you can read them as "This prize is in..." = Ova nagrada je u ..." or "This egg is now in..." = "Ovo jaje je sada u ..." 

Since the first egg at the top, worth 3 months of free Aktivator membership, was the most difficult to find, and wasn't claimed at all, I'll give it to Silvina from Argentina, the woman behind @NovakFunClub . There was also one more unclaimed egg, worth one month of free SkolaSrpskog Aktivator, which I'm giving to Tina - a dedicated student from the Netherlands. Čestitke svima  :-)

St Valentin Poem in Serbian

Girls' version
(a girl writing to a boy):

U srce sam te zaključaLA,
Ne možeš izaći,
A ključić sam izgubiLA,
Ne možeš ga naći!

Now, can you write the boy version in the comment?

Advanced Serbian - Srpski kao drugi jezik

Gde je ključ? Где је кључ? - Učimo srpski sa Marinom
Gde je ključ? ...
Where is the Key?-...
