I'm from Poland. Christmas time it is my favorite time of year.
We start December 24th. It is a very important day for Polish Christian people. On Eve Christmas Day in the morning families decorate Christmas Three and we put presents under tree.  Afternoons we met with family and eat special dinner without meat. We leave free seat at the table for an unexpected guest. At the beginning we waiting for a first star and later we share of the special wafer and we wish all the best each other.  For Traditional Christmas dinner should be 12 dishes:
·         a carp - is fish;
·         red borscht - is a soup made of beetroots - with ravioli;
·         dumplings with mushrooms,
·         peas with cabbage
·         dried fruit compote,
·         poppy-seed cake,
·         An interesting dish is Kutia is traditional Christmas cake with wheat, poppy seed, nuts, dried fruits and honey.
After dinner we sing Christmas carols together and some kids go carol singing and get some money or sweet.
 We go to Church at midnight.
The next day, on December 25, it is Christmas. We spend time with family and we visit friends.
