Merry Christmas – Wesołych Świąt Bożego Narodzenia, the short version of this is simply – Wesołych Świąt (Happy Holiday) and you can say it while sharing the wafer, but also in your workplace, shop, etc.

Other wishes you can say during Wigilia (wafer sharing):

All the best – Wszystkiego najlepszego
