Description
 
Oplatek
The design on this card is printed to look just like the oplatek Christmas wafers familiar to all Poles.
As the first star appears on Christmas Eve, Polish people around the world gather for the traditional Wigilia (vigil) dinner. Under the tablecloth is placed straw or hay in memory of the holy manger at Bethlehem. There is always set an extra place at the table either as a symbolic remembrance of absent friends or relatives, or in the event that some unfortunate stranger happens by who has no one with whom to share Wigilia.
Before dinner, all those present share the ceremonial white oplatek wafer of unleavened bread which is embossed with a beautiful Nativity design. As each person breaks his oplatek with the others, they wish blessings of peace, love, health and happiness for the coming year. The oplatek serves as a Christmas symbol of spiritual unity among Poles throughout the world.
