Polish Christmas Eve Dinner


Polish Christmas Eve dinner is called Wigilia, every year it is hosted by a Girl’s Aunt and Uncle. When the first star in the sky appears, the family gathers at the table to begin the meatless feast to commemorate the birth of Baby Jesus.  The table is decorated in a white tablecloth with a nativity scene on a layer of hay to remember the birth of Baby Jesus in the manger. Before sitting down at the table, all members of the family break the traditional wafer oplatek, and exchange good wishes.  The oplatek is a thin wafer stamped with images of the God Child, Mary and the Angels. Polish carols, kolendy, are played and sung during the meal.  Meals and traditions vary from family to family.

Confirmed COVID 19 cases are expected to rise along with the expansion in testing, but the need for critical care is stabilizing and so far has not exceeded the state's hospital capacity.These totals, along with a list of six key indicators he shared last week, will determine when the state will begin easing social distancing orders and returning to some degree of normalcy.The metrics alone, Newsom said, will determine the timeline. "When the indicators go green, I am going to go live."Newsom promised he would make the announcements "in real time" once the data signals that it's safe to begin easing restrictions."There is no such thing as reopening back to normal it is normal with caveats," he said.
