  • Polish 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, embossed with beautiful Nativity scenes, 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.

  3. Polish Tradition 5 Star Review

    We always received oplatek from parents but with their passing had not gotten any until now. Planning on sharing our tradition with our neighbors. It will make the holiday more special this year.

    Tradition on my husband's side of the family. Glad we could get it here instead of driving to the nearest Polish Catholic Church!

  5. Best Oplatki 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Dec 2018

    St Jude took the time to carefully pack and ship my oplatki. I ordered 30 packs and none were broken. They were of good taste and artistry appropriate for the Christian religious holiday. The price was above average but worth the authenticity and quality.
