On the occasion of Orthodox Christmas or/and Orthodox New Year, Macedonian eat pita (a kind of bread) and do this "coin" thing. When someone makes the pita, she/he puts a coin into the dough and bakes it. Then, when they eat it, sharing together with family or friends or co-workers, one of them gets the coin in her/his portion. It is said whoever gets the coin-contained pita slice will have "luck" this year. And, yes, I got a coin.
