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.
Received in a timely manner with a personal message on shipping envelope. Thank you; you made my day!
We love being able to keep the tradition alive. Thank you for the speedy delivery

I am so pleased to be able to obtain the Oplatki for our Christmas celebration. It is a tradition from my husband’s family that we are so touched to be able to continue through the existence of My Polish Heritage. The Oplatki arrived in good time and in perfect condition. The wafers are beautiful and we appreciate with our whole hearts the care with which My Polish Heritage offers them. Thank you so much!!
My grandparents always served this holy water to us on holidays so I wanted to share with my family.
Sharing Optatki Christmas Eve has been bc a family tradition for over 60 years.
Since our Polish Church was closed finding it difficult to get.
Oplatki is Christmas tradition in my family.
My Mom teared up as she read the history and then the stories came out of memories of this from long ago. Beautiful! This will be a yearly tradition from now on! Thank you!
Thank you so much! We have celebrated this tradition for many years.

Now that my parents are gone and our church is closed, we had no where to get oplatki. It's so nice to be able to get oplatki to share with the family at Wigilia. Thank you for offering them.
I was pleased the envelopes contained a bit of the story behind the Oplatek, but absolutely DELIGHTED to find out about the sharing with pets! My 92 year old mother thought I was fibbing!

Since it is not easy to obtain Polish items, I certainly appreciate the convenience of ordering items on line and of good quality.
