In Poland there´s a big emphasis on getting ready for Christmas – it looks like Polish women probably don´t sleep as they have so much to do. This year I tried to help my Mum as much as I could.
Although we didn´t have the 12 meals which are a must in Poland, I think we did really a good piece of work. My Granny made her vegetable salad with mayonaise, helped us with preparing a beetrut soup and my Mum and I made dumplings with meat. We baked simple cookies with a layer of non-sugar jam and keks – traditional Polish cake with raisins and nuts. My Father´s task was to bake a turkey for our Christmas dinner.
