December is a special month in Polish traditions mainly because it is devoted to christmas. December 24th is a special day - it is Christmas Eve. What happens during Christmas time?
Every family celebrate Christmas differently, but for everybody Christmas is very important time.During Christmas people try to be nice to other people, they try to be kind, friendly. My family celebrate Christmas very solemnly. We wait for Christmas importiently. We decorate Christmas tree a week before Christmas. It's decorated with some toys, glass balls, sporkling tinsel, chains. Everybody waits for christmas Eve. I always spend my Christmas Eve with all my family. When the first star appers, we take seats at the Christmas table. There are twelve dishes at the table. After sapper, we give same gifts to each other. Of course we don't forget about leaving an empty place for an unexpected guest. The most popular dishes are some fish, red borsch, piesor sour cabbage with mushrooms. Of course before sapper we shave the holy wafel. After sapper we sing carols. The first and second day of Christmas we eat a special dinner and celebrate the Christmas atmosphere at home.
