  • Creches and Nativities

    We feature a variety of Christmas creches from Poland the most famous of all being those from Krakow. Each year on the first Thursday of December, from 9:00am to 12:00am, in keeping with the local tradition, nativity scene makers gather in the picturesque scenery of the the Adam Mickiewicz statue to present their latest craftwork to the organizers of the Krakow Nativity Scene Contest - representatives of the Historical Museum of the City of Krakow (HMK) - as well as to the wide circle of tradition lovers. The contest was initiated in 1937 by the Krakow Municipal Board. As the local newspaper wrote on Dec. 23 of that year, "it yielded extraordinarily impressive resluts, and the Krakow authorities made a praiseworthy effort by inspiring nativity scene makers to safeguard the ancient custom, raise the level of their artistry, and - most of all - to preserve the purity of style of the Krakow nativity scene".

  • Music

    The carol, or koleda in Polish (from the Latin "calendae"), is a song thematically connected with Christmas, and is sung in Poland from December 24th to February 2, that is, to the feast of the Presentation of the Lord or Candlemas.  It comes from the sphere of folk culture and the tradition of singing at home.  In the folk repertiore carols hold a special place, not only in view of their specific character and variety, but also for their sheer number.  For centuries, they were composed in monastaries, in royal courts, knights' castles, and the courts of the nobility.  Their authors were members of the Polish clergy, church organists, parish school-teachers, and on occasion our distinguished writers and poets.  The musical canvas of the Polish carol is formed above all by the melodies and rhythms of dances such as mazurkas, krakowiaks, obereks, kujawiaks, polonaises, and sentimental dumkas or elegies.  Many Christmas carols likewise possess a touch of majestic choruses and hymns, whose melody line and deep theoological content testify to their origins in Latin Gregorian chant.
