Christmas Eve in Poland
As the religion of the Catholic Church teaches a holy day for every Christian. Christmas is the time when God comes into the world in the form of baby Jesus. During this period in Poland Wigilia is celebrated in almost every home and family. It is one of the most important holidays in the calendar year. It is at this time that each of us is engaged in preparing the house for this special period. We take care of its cleaning and tidying. The next stage is shopping from which we prepare 12 Christmas Eve dishes and leave an empty place at the table.
It's also the time where we deal with for these Christmas days dressing and decorating the Christmas tree as well as the entire house in various types of ornaments, whether it's for the front door of the tome as well as the tuners that we put on the table where the Christmas Eve will be held. It is the day when we have many different customs as well as traditions. It's a special day when all of us from the whole family meet at the table on which there are already prepared dishes and at the very beginning, after reading a fragment of the Bible, we break the wafer. It's a special time during which we wish each other all the best. Then we proceed to eat the dishes. It is important to remember to leave one place free for the person who may come unannounced, and we should welcome them. This time is a moment for reflection, sighing and the kindness of people.
Midnight Mass - Mass on Christmas Eve.
It is a special mass which always takes place in the evening. It is assumed that it is 12 o'clock in the night or 24th. It is one of the most awaited and probably the most solemn day for every Christian in the whole year. It is during this mass that the bells in all churches in Poland ring at 12 o'clock. Different types of carols are sung, in particular the most popular one is: God is born. At the very beginning this special day was celebrated only in Bethlehem and Jerusalem, but over time this tradition has spread throughout the world with the Christians. Always in almost every church at this time is built crib Bethlehem. In which we meet Jesus, Mary and Joseph and the three kings and animals that came to the birth of Jesus. When it comes to this special day, Pasterka in Poland is already since medieval times, of course, it was not in such a form and so celebrated as now because very much has changed but as you can see it is already very long known this tradition in our country.
It is a place that represents our idea of where Jesus Christ was born. Sometimes it is a stable - often cribs are built in churches or in a cave or even a grotto. We don't really know, and that's why each of us imagines it a little differently. But it always features the same people, Joseph, Mary, Jesus and the three kings and animals. They came to this nativity scene thanks to the Star of Bethlehem and angels who showed them the way. In Poland, in Krakow every year we can see a variety of buildings people from all over the country who specially for this occasion build their own unique buildings of this kind. In larger cities we can also see live cribs with real animals. In the world the first such arrangement was built in 1223 in the town of Greccio by St. Francis.
