Christmas in Poland

The Polish Christmas season begin with Roraty. These are church services held for four Sundays which represent waiting 4000 years for Christ. On Christmas Eve everyone watches the skies, as they hope to be the first person to spot Gwiazdka or little star to commemorate the star of Bethlehem.

Many special traditions are performed during advent. Fortunes are told from the shapes hot wax make after being poured into water. Pierniki is baked and cut into shapes of St. Nicholas and animals. Christmas supper is called Wigilia. This meal is considered sacred and is very carefully planned. While no meat is served with this meal, the children eat up as the excitement builds to open their presents, an event that they have been waiting for all year.

Many children hope to receive presents of toys, but the occasional gift of a pear shaped locket pendant or stainless steel pendant are surprises that add a touch of glamour to your holiday.
