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.
Super pleased with the packaging and of course, your usual personal touch. Many thanks!
How quick and convenient to restock my supply! Fantastic price and service. They even include a wafer for your pets! My favorite thing about ordering from this site is that they actually take the time to handwrite my name and thank me for my purchase! Best service and quality at great prices. Thank you!!!
Very pleased with the purchases.
Since it is not easy to obtain Polish items, I certainly appreciate the convenience of ordering items on line and of good quality.
Lovely to buy Opłatki to share with the family!
I am sure we will enjoy the holiday bread.
Great to be able to carry on this Polish tradition of Oplatki with my family. Was happy to find it on your site.
Happy to have joined your group. Could not have found this anywhere else. Thanks again.
