Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Wesołych Świąt! Posted by on Dec 24, 2009 in Culture

Wigilia, Wigilia i po Wigilii…
How are your stomachs? Suffering from heartburn and indigestion? If not, that wasn’t a proper Polish Christmas Eve then. If yes, congratulations, and don’t worry, the pain is normal, especially after eating karp.

And oh yeah, you shouldn’t be able to dig yourself out from the mountains of gift wrap that easily either.

Since it’s already Christmas where I’m at, I wanted to wish you all Wesołych Świąt Bożego Narodzenia. I hoped you found what you really wanted pod choinką (under the Christmas tree), or in a stocking, if you’re doing it the “western” way.

I hope you’re spending Święta with your loved ones, whether it’s in Poland or abroad.

Or, if you’re not the Christmasy type (and I admit, I’m not) then have a blast shopping – poświąteczne przeceny (after xmas sales) start tomorrow (at least in the US).

So, one more time – Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Wesołych Świąt!

Oh, and one more thing – don’t become a Christmas statistic – stay safe, don’t drink and drive. I want you to be able to read this blog next year too, you know?

See you all here po Świętach!
