Today is Christmas Eve and being Polish, we celebrate Wigilia tonight. It is one of the most beloved and cherished traditions of the Poles. It is the feast to commemorate the birth of Christ. (If you would like to know more about this, let me know.)
We have some dear friends coming over to share in this but we will also be thinking of our families and friends who live elsewhere and of those who are not with us anymore. We always set an extra setting for any wanderer or extra person who may need food or shelter this evening. This is a time of love, sharing, and forgiveness.
So we wanted to say to you all, Wesoly Swiat (Merry Christmas) and may you all have joy, peace and good health in the new year.
