Christmas traditions in the Czech Republic

In the Czech Republic there are a lot of different traditions in contrast to other parts of the world.One which really surprised me was that single women there perform a very unusual ritual on Christmas Eve day in order to find out if they will mary in the following year.With their backs to the house door they throw their shoes over their shoulder.If the shoe lands with the heel towards the door she will definitely stay single,while if the front of the shoe lands towards the door she will propably get married the following year and she will move out of her parents house and start the wedding preparations
