In Poland instead, the particularity is linked above all to the moment of lunch: on Christmas Eve, the delicacies of the table are consumed only after having seen the first star in the sky, and the Oplatek biscuit is offered at the beginning of the meal, which shows the image of Mary, Joseph and Jesus: a truly particular and significant tradition.
Countries like instead in Germany the celebrations begin already in November, on St. Martin's day, with beautiful processions of children who illuminate the cities with their lanterns!
Even in Netherlands It is a tradition that already in November a beautiful Christmas atmosphere spreads, thanks to the entry into the cities of St. Nicholas (called Sinterklaas) with his assistant Zwarte Pieten, very often riding a beautiful white horse.
