Did you know that in Taiwan Christmas is not a holiday?
Every has to go work or to school. This year even my Dad had to go to office .
Polish Christmas lasts three days, from Christmas Eve (Wigilia) to December 26 .
For Wigilia we prepare 12 different dishes. Among others there are: my favorite wild mushroom soup (or barszcz - beetroot soup), fish, pierogi (dumplings with sauerkraut and mushrooms) and many cakes. We don't eat meat on Wigilia.

|Polish potato-egg salad, Mom's specialty.|
|Walnut cake (no flour!)|

But before we start eating we share Oplatek (Christmas wafer) wishing everybody all the best.
