Polish Christmas Table

It is Christmas time and I will introduce what you can find in a Polish Christmas table. Now in supermarkets you can find a big fish pool. The fish pool is filled with carps. Interesting that in Poland carp is considered a good fish to a festive table as my granddad would not eat carp because he considers it trash fish. Also families like to prepare big amount of dumplings which can be eaten during Christmas days. There are many things on the table but meat is not eaten traditionally on the 24th of December.

Probably the most interesting tradition is to prepare a seat and plate for an unexpected guest. It is not common to receive an unexpected guest to the Christmas table but still the place is prepared.
