Polish Christmas Traditions--Merry Miklasz Christmas

We follow most, but not all of the Christmas traditions from Poland, leaving out the importance of the plethora of fish offerings (eew). We've had borscht on Christmas Eve, we've done the mushroom soup thing, my mom certainly cleans the house like a crazy woman before the holidays, and we definitely pass to Oplatek (communion wafers) around the table before our meal together, even though our Polish family ditched Catholicism eons ago....

Wesołych świąt i szczęśliwego Nowego Roku!!! (Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!)

My son did a great job of explaining Polish Christmas traditions for a school project: Enjoy!
