We Polish people, where ever we are in the world /me and my family in USA/ , celebrate Christmas Eve as the most important day of
Christmas. Christmas Eve is known as ‘Wigilia’. It’s tradition that no
food is eaten until the first star is seen in the sky. On the table
there are 12 dishes. The most important dish in my household are makielki. Everyone has to eat or at least try some of each
dish. Carp is the main dish of the meal. On the Christmas Eve we open
the presents. In most of the houses, before the presents are opened, the
family sings carols together
Hand made embellishment - flower , frames, tag etc....
