The birth of Jesus Christ is a holiday celebrated at home with the family, as well as attending church services. Despite all the customs, gathering the family around a rich table is a major event. It is mandatory to light the oil lamp and break the bread. But there is another great symbol of the happiest Christian holiday on the table - Christmas wheat.
Although it can be bought almost anywhere before Christmas, if you are one of those who want to respect customs, plant it yourself.
If you want the grass to grow until Christmas, it needs to be planted in time. It should be green and lush.
The wheat is planted on the feast of Saint Martyr Varvara, on December 17th, at the Orthodox Church or St. Nicholas on December 19, and for the Catholics on December 13th, on the day of Saint Lucia.
Planting requires a handful of wheat and a plate or container to plant. 
First place wheat in water overnight.
The next day, place the soil in a shallow container and place the wheat above soil. 
Cover the grains with a little soil, which you will spray with water at room temperature every day.
Wheat grains can also be groundless. Only deploy to the bottom of the container to completely cover it.
Leave at least 1 centimeter to the edges as the sprouting wheat will expand. Water gently. It is best only to spray it with water once or twice a day.
An empty space can be left in the middle of the container to put a candle later. Take a shallow plate, if desired, place a small glass of brandy in the middle. Apply the grains around the glass.
You can cover the wheat that you have planted with a cotton fabric dipped in water to b
ubble the grains and to have a sufficient amount of moisture. When the first sprouts emerge, the fabric needs to be removed so that the wheat grows smoothly.
Before putting it on the table, the grass is cut with a scissors to keep it flat as it often grows unevenly.
Place a candle in the middle on Christmas Eve, and decorate as desired.
