This Week's NATIONAL ETIQUETTE AWARD goes to... Serbia!

Government of Serbia and Montenegro

Serbia and Montenegro: World Factbook

National Tourism Organization of Serbia

Free Serbia Net

The Royal Family of Serbia and Montenegro

I hereby grant the National Etiquette Award to Serbia and Montenegro, as it is customary in that country to remvoe shoes when entering homes.

I heard the news of Serbia's former preseident, Slobodan Milosevic's death on Sunday night. How did he die? It could be that the question will spark an international controversy, now that Russia is questioning the autopsy of Milosevic's body.

The trial of Milosevic for war crimes had been going on for years. It was such an incredibly lengthy process. Would he have been convicted eventually? Who knows. It is a great shame for justice that the process was interrupted by his death. God will judge him regardless.

There are many Evangelical Christians in Serbia, however, as with most places, they are weak and divided.

Yeah for Serbia!

I heard the news too over the weekend concerning Slobodan Milosevic...he wasn't a very nice man, to say the the least.

Hey try to say Slobodan Milosevic as many times as you can and as fast as you can. Ha, it's hard...and funny...wait, no it's not that hard after all. :(

Dear DF, removal of shoes at the door is customary in Bosnia Hercegovina and Croatia as well, the shoes are replaced by cute slippers with lovely designs on them. Guests bring their own slippers and change into them before entering the house. commonly outdoor slippers are kept by the door to wear while walking to a neigbor's flat, or taking out the garbage.
God Bless!

Katja,
Thankyou so much for visiting.

I was aware that it was generally the custom in Balkan countries. Maybe I will give the award to Bosnia/ Herzegovinia or Croatia some time soon.

I am glad that so many countries practise removing shoes in homes.

God Bless you too

Matthew
