Here we are in Poland. After discussing different traditions our families brough to America from the old country- I used my example of the food my family eats at Christmas Dinner. I am from Italy so in addition to the traditional American turkey we also have ravioli, braciole and other wonderful goodies. In Poland we made wycinanki(vih-chee-NON-key) symetrical paper cuts used to decorate at Easter time. They were left up in the house for an entire year and replaced at the next Easter.
