Może tak, pozwoliłam sobie trochę pobawić się tekstem :D a! holy wafer- to ten to hostia, christmas wafer - to nasz opłatek.
My favourite Christmas custom is sharing the christmas wafer. I love it. All my family try to be kind, friendly and generous to other. The wafer is a special small round flatbread. Christmas wafers, whose patterns often depict religious scenes, are an Eastern European Roman Catholic Christmas tradition celebrated during Wigilia (Christmas Eve Vigil). Th wafers are testeless, (or some say they taste like cardboard) but nevertheless it's the ritual that counts. Before we take seats at the table, we get up and wish holiday greetings to each other. Sometimes we get emotional. We cry and we laugh simultaniously, while we whish each other health, lots of money, less problems, and all the best in the upcoming new year. Christmas atmosphere can be felt almost everywhere. Sharing christmas wafer is a very traditional custom in Poland and my family didn't cease continuing it. It will be always present in my family and my kids will continue this custom.
