Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's curator insight, November 28, 2013 11:05 AM

Thank you for sharing.

In Poland, Andrzejki, or St. Andrew's Eve is observed on the night of November 29th (St. Andrew's Day is on the 30th of November). This tradition has its roots in the past and is focused on superstitions and fortune telling. Poles who take part in Andrzejki rituals do so for fun rather than to gain insight into their futures, but for those traveling to Poland or those who are interested in Polish culture, the traditions are worth knowing about.
