x My partner is albanian and is not religious and don't think i have ever come across any particular religion whilst in albania.
He isn't really that bothered by his own birthday but obviously will celebrate our girls and mine.
Thanks xx i think different areas have different customs all over albania.
My partner is from Vlore which is a busy resort and fairly laid back although i have been to different parts of albania where the customs/beliefs are slightly different.
Thanks ladies Hello Claire my husband is not albanian he is a muslim and knows alot of albanian men that go to the Mosque who are obviously Muslims.
There is a section in the join the club bit on netmums with some albanian wives posting on there they may help.
I was wondering if you could tell me about anything u think is important for me to know.I dont know what happens at weddings or if anything else could be different..
We never go to mosques we don't even know how to pray (and actually we don't care about religion). People in albania in general will marry people from other religions, e.g.We don't teach them or in general speak them about religious topics.And one last thing, you should make a clear distinction between Albanian culture and religion(s). Visi My partner is albanian and is not religious and don't think i have ever come across any particular religion whilst in albania.His family will also buy a cake and celebrate our girls birthdays even when we are not there with them, other than that i would say his family celebrate new years more than anything xx My husband didn't have much growing up and said it wasn't a cultural thing to celebrate birthdays...20 or 30 years ago.Now, it's common for children to have a birthday cake.Maybe he just doesnt practice a religion what about his family? I did think albania was mainly muslim but that is just as I said because my husband knows quite alot of muslim who are from there. Dear Claire, I am Albanian, and I'll try to say my word on this.You might have heard that most of the population in albania is muslim, (less than 70%), and the rest (~30%) is Roman catholic and Cristian orthodox.The most common varieties of indigenous Albanian grapes are Kallmeti, Shesh, Debin, Vranac and Vlosh, among others.The Land of the Eagles can be divided into four big wine regions, including the coastal plains, central hilly region, the eastern-sub mountainous region and the mountains.Çobo WineryÇobo Winery is a family winery scenically situated at the base of Mount Tomorr near the Unesco town of Berat, which can easily be visited before or after the wine tour.As for the grown ups, I don't know many that celebrate their birthday.It took a few years for my husband to get use to the idea of him having a cake and presents. The country, with its good climate and strategic position near the Mediterranean Sea, is the perfect place for many grape varieties.Several wineries open their doors to visitors and offer guided tours for half the price of nearby neighbors.I know the countries mainly muslim and Catholic i think? I just find a bit confusing and wondered if anyone can explain a little Also he wears a Jesus on a cross necklace but says it was just a present?
