The Polish Christmas tradition of Opłatki (Christmas Wafer), is a beautiful and important one. The Breaking of Bread is a sign of charity, unity and fellowship. The wafer is blessed by the eldest family member, offering a prayer for God’s grace and blessing for health, happiness, and forgiveness.
The Opłatki are distributed to all the family members. Then each person shares their Opłatki with every other person present, wishing them a Merry Christmas, (Wesołych Świąt Bożego Narodzenia). Often a piece of the Opłatki is mailed to absent family.
While all of the wafers are made for human consumption, the pink wafer included is for the animals in the home. After all, the animals near the manger were there at His birth.
You will receive a set of 4 ( 3 White wafers and 1 Pink wafers.)
Wafer measures 3" x 5 3/4"
Wafer imprint design may vary between packs. Example Shown.
