  4. 4. The family gathers in the evening, but traditionally the feast only begins when the first star has been sighted in the night sky. <br />Pieces of hay have been placed on or under the table to remind of the manager and Christ's humble beginnings. <br />Additionally, an extra seat is always left open with the place set for the unexpected guest.<br />After the sighting of the first star, the meatless Wigilia feast begins with the sharing of opłatki Christmas wafers. <br />Each guest at the dinner takes one whole wafer and goes around to every other person with wishes for the new year. Wishes may be as simple as -all the best-or very personalized and detailed. <br />After saying the wish for the other person, the pair break off pieces of each other's opłatek and eat the pieces. <br />It is bad luck to skip someone, so guests are sure to exchange wishes with every person.<br />

  7. 7. The Wigilia meal beginswith soup. Red barszcz (borscht) with uszka, small tortellini-shaped dumplings filled with mushrooms, is the traditionalWigilia choice. <br />The soup is followed by a large number of dishes (often a symbolic number, such as 7, 12, or 13) including carp, pickled herring, pierogi (with cabbage inside), sauerkraut, a fruit compote drink, and of course, lots of pastries and other desserts.<br />During the dinner, Santa Clausdelivers gifts, and the family exchanges and opens the gifts after the meal. <br />Sometimes games or played or songs are sung, but finally, the celebration concludes with the midnight Christmas mass at the local church. <br />
