Czech by Numbers - Birthdays and anniversaries
Hello and welcome to Czech by Numbers, Radio Prague's Czech language course in which we look at the different ways of using numbers in everyday speech. Today we'll take a look at expressions and idioms to do with birthdays and anniversaries.
An anniversary - výročí - can also be "round" - kulaté výročí. So Radio Prague's 70th anniversary in 2006 is a perfectly "round anniversary".
Wedding anniversaries have special names in Czech, too. A twenty-fifth anniversary is called stříbrná svatba - a silver wedding. Fifty years is celebrated as zlatá svatba - a golden wedding and a diamond wedding, or a 60th anniversary, is diamantová svatba.
And this is where we'll end today's episode. Tune in again next time for more useful Czech phrases. Till then good-bye, na shledanou.
