Advent Calendar Door 19 💌

Christmas in Croatia 🇭🇷

Today our colleague Rebeka told us about customs and tradition in her home country Croatia.

Did you know that Wolt is operating there as well? 🚴‍♂️

The traditions are quite similar to the German customs: advent calendar, decorating the house, getting a Christmas tree as soon as possible, to get in the spirit! 💫

A really popular tradition in Croatia is the so-called Christmas wheat, an Advent custom in which grains are planted on a plate, mostly on St. Barbara's Day (December 4) or St. Lucia's Day (December 13). This seed, which usually sprouts from wheat or barley, is one of the origins of the Christmas tree and is still widespread as a custom among Catholics, especially in Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia and southern France.

Furthermore, those who are religious go to church at 5am a few days before Christmas. On the 24th, it is very common to eat fish or other fasting meals. And on Christmas day, it is very popular to eat turkey with potato dumplings as well as a lot of cakes, that are freshly baked! 🍰

Have you ever heard of Christmas wheat, or maybe planted one yourself? 🌿

The competition will take place daily from 01.12.2022 to 24.12.2022 on the Wolt Kurier blog ( You can comment daily under the current blog post to participate in the sweepstakes. Details about the competition can be found here. The competition is open to anyone over the age of 18 who lives in Germany. Excluded are persons who have not completed a delivery as Wolt courier in the last three months. The Advent raffle and the winnings granted therefrom represent a voluntary benefit of the employer. A corresponding claim does not arise for the future from the implementation of the raffle. We reserve the right to decide each year whether to hold an Advent raffle and which prizes to offer. This also applies if we hold the raffle repeatedly.
