Time for Polish Halloween this week. At the beginning of November Poles celebrated All Saints’ Day in a calm and peaceful manner, remembering all those loved ones who passed away. The end of November marks a change in tone as Poles gather around to discover what the future holds for them and join in with the parties. Today we’re going to talk about Andrzejki and Katarzynki night and how the Polish tradition makes them a unique celebration worth getting to know.
The symbol of the Andrzejki Night is “lanie wosku” (wax melting) – find out more about this fortune telling tradition by visiting our “how to” guide here.
