I like travelling, family history and reading books. I am ESL teacher in High Junior school and at University.
Very interesting video. I learned a lot about your Christmas Eve meal.
So you ARE WELCOME
An interesting video - sounded too "Polish USA" for me, but the details of what occurs in Poland were enlightening.7 courses to 11 courses - from Peasants to the Nobility - that is not too bad for any grouping. It is not often "ANYONE" sitsfor 7 courses - 11 courses might result in gastric problems!!Fish is strange as the main item - I would have associated fish with the Scandinavian countries - Pork and Chickenwould have been my expectations for Poland, but maybe that is for Christmas Day??Thank you Gosia for your excellent blog on Poland and her traditions. Your blog, like the "Very" few others that I follow serves a purpose - educating people of customs, traditions, history etc.CheersColinPS: The weather DID cool off last night - again a "sauna" morning with afternoon late storms.
Colin I don't prepare so many meal for this eve buit some people do it these days it is a tradition here. My grandma did it so I remember a big family gathering from my childhood. I am satisfied you visit my blog.Thanks a lot

Margaret you are welcome
