On Christmas Eve the Polish people celebrate a traditional vigil supper called “Wigilia” which means “to await”. The children of the family look for the appearance of the first star at dusk and then to begin the meal members of the family break up pieces of Oplatki and give them to each other with a blessing. Then the actual supper begins. Bring this Catholic Polish tradition home to your Christmas table. Wafers are available in packs of 12 Oplatki or 20 Oplatki. Learn more about the Oplatki tradition.
