Oplatki Christmas wafers are a wonderful Christmas Eve tradition celebrated in Poland and other Slav countries. The Christmas wafers consist of 3 white wafers and 1 pink wafer which measure 3 x 5-1/2 inches and which are cello wrapped and then placed in a Christmas envelope. The white wafers are traditionally passed around the table and shared with guests on Christmas Eve along with good wishes and blessings. The head of the house shares the pink wafer at midnight with any animals he has as a reminder that we are all God's creatures. For those who are not familiar with the tradition, there is an enclosure included with the Oplatki Christmas wafers which explains the tradition, the rite itself and the symbolism of the rite. The Oplatki wafers are imported from Poland and made only once a year at Christmas time from pure wheat flour and water. St. Patrick's Guild is pleased to be able to provide the wafers for this wonderful holiday tradition.
