It is one of two presentations, prepared by the pupils of Leżajsk Primary School No. 2, Poland, referring to the Polish culinary traditions connected with Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve and Easter. Each institution (there are eight of them: from France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain and Turkey) participating in one of the Comenius projects made a multimedia presentation on what people eat on some special days typical of its own country. Afterwards the works were sent to all the other partner schools to be used during classes.
