I don’t know if Belarusians are real Christians but we don’t have a tradition of eating carp on Christmas Eve or a week earlier. We have many similar Christmas dishes with Catholic Poles. Carp is not one of them. I am not sure if Catholic Lithuanians have a tradition of eating carp on Christmas either. In Belarus there are commercial fisheries growing carp exporting it to Poland. Poles love carp on Christmas.

 I am not fond of carp. In fact, I don’t like it at all. It has many bones having smell of ooze (slime? – I can think of the word in English)  . It’s muddy underwater grass in lakes.

I like fresh water fish perch, trout , probably spike and many others. Carp is not one of them. :)
