Winter in Poland is a special time for children. This time Santa Claus comes, then we have advent, Christmas, New Year and time for crazy fun in the snow…
On 6th December, Santa Claus comes to good children and brings ideal gifts…
4 weeks before Christmas there is an advent - time for waiting for a birth of Jesus Christ. Every day children with lanterns go to church for morning mass.
In the evening on 24th December, after the first star has appeared, all family sit at the table for Christmas dinner. According the tradition there should be 12 dishes. The dinner starts with the wishes and sharing of the Christmas wafer. Then we sing carols and the children can open the presents given by Baby Jesus. At midnight everyone goes to church on Christmas midnight mass to share the joy of the birth of the Savior.
On 31 December, similar like in any other place, we say goodbye to the Last Year and we welcome New Year. There is great fun in whole country.
Winter, winter, winter, The snow is falling! It is a time when children play outside, ride sleighs, go skiing, go skating, make snowmen, build igloo, throw snowballs and so on…
