Happy Wigilia & Wesolych Swiat to all our followers

The most special day in the Polish calendar is here and the evening’s celebrations are only a few hours away! Yes, Wigilia has arrived!

Choinka/Christmas trees have been decorated this morning (for those who can still wait for the traditional time to do these! we half did :)), last minute food shopping has been done, carp is waiting in the fridge to be beautifully fried & feasted on, cakes have been baked and hours have been spent sticking together large numbers of the infamous pierogi/dumplings and uszkas/ears to fry off and enjoy tonight with delicious barszcz/beetroot soup.

Now all there’s left to do (apart from preparing it all on the table :)) is to wait for the first twinkling star in the sky to start the Wigilia meal by sharing oplatek (holy bread) .. and let’s hope there’s 12 dishes like the tradition demands! 🙂

To get into the Polish Wigilia spirit – here are some Koledy (Christmas Carols) sung by Mazowsze to listen to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPf2aMQ5ARk&playnext=1&list=PLDF941B05772A0251&feature=results_main

So to all our festive followers, we wish you all Wesolych Swiat for this special day & evening! …. look out for that first star in the sky!! 🙂
