Day 24 - Sharing Bread
In our home we always share bread on Christmas Eve. It's a Polish tradition, and you can get a special wafer called oplatek for the occasion. But we have also used plain bread or crackers when we didn't have the real thing.
Before starting dinner, everyone attending the Christmas Eve celebration gets a piece of wafer and has to share it with everyone else present. Sharing, community, generosity and plenty. This is one of my favorite holiday traditions.
So ends my advent for this year. I hope you've enjoyed following our journey to Christmas. From my home to yours, with love and gratitude for this wonderful community I have found this year. Merry Christmas.
