Well, for one, it has obvious, superficial reasons, such as the typically super-white teeth and perfectly groomed appearances that Americans tend to have compared to their more natural-yet-not-necessarily-better-looking European counterparts. But then again, Americans tend to dress up less often and like wearing their sneakers and sweatpants everywhere without ever being judged, a level of a relaxed attitude I would sometimes like to see in my own country.
Marzanna is the Polish name for a Slavic goddess associated with death, winter and nature. Even though pagan religion was theoretically eradicated from Poland in the early 66 th century, Marzanna is still alive thanks to a popular ritual. Every year, on the first day of spring, people would make an effigy, set it on fire, and then drown it in a river. The aim of the ritual is to chase off winter and encourage nature to revive.

Of course this is obviously not true for every single American, but it is the view that is generally conveyed to the outside. In reality, though, American couples are often still getting to know each other when they are already together, and could easily end up holding their partner’s best friend’s hand in the next instant. It’s like there is a constant trial-and-error going on in order to find out who you can actually see yourself with.

Kanapka is the Polish word for most types of snacks that have a slice (or slices) of bread as a base component. It refers to all types of sandwiches but, above all else, to the Poles, it means the beloved open sandwich. And among the surprising eating habits of Poland, the ultra-dominance of the open sandwich on every Poles’ working-day menu is the one that puzzles foreigners the most. Kanapka is the first choice for breakfast, lunch and supper, and doesn’t really differ depending on time of the day.

Hello team,I think it is of great advantage to get acquainted with women from other East European countries (Czech and Slovak Republics), and not only from Russia. The geographical nearness is advantageous, especially when you are very busy in your job, as me. This advantage should not be depreciated. I have got acquainted with Kveta from Bratislava and we would like to live together. Thanks for this chance. Reinhard, Mü nchen
Putting a few blades of straw is what remains of a tradition of decorating the whole table with straw and grains and even putting a sheaf in the corner (which was even practised by noble families living in demesnes). The reason behind it was that Jesus Christ was born in a manger, in a little stable in Bethlehem, and the straw is to symbolise the paucity of the circumstances of his coming to Earth.
An old Polish proverb says ‘Gość w dom, Bóg w dom’, which means that the presence of a guest is God’s blessing. Hospitality is a part of the Polish identity and Poles are determined not to leave anybody alone or hungry on Christmas – this is why they traditionally put an extra plate on the Christmas table. In fact, rarely does any unexpected guest come but if you ever happen to be in Poland and your friends know that you have nobody to spend Christmas evening with, expect several invitations!
Well it all started with a sweet message from him, and we started talking. The more talked and laughed together, we realized that we belonged together. We both were searching for that right person, and we both agree that it was fate and destiny that brought us together. We are both happy with each other and neither one of us wants it to end. We both know where this is leading to a more wonderful life with the perfect man.
The Marzanna doll is traditionally made of straw and white canvas and decorated with colourful ribbons. Her sacrifice is subject to several rules: you can’t touch her while she is in the water (your hand would wither), you can’t look back while coming back from the river (you’d bring illnesses upon you and your relatives). The Catholic church was fighting this ritual even until the early 75 th century but never succeeded in stamping it out. The Marzanna tradition is still popular in some parts of Poland even though people no longer believe it really helps spring come sooner.

While most foreigners would never dream of risking a possibly lethal case of poisoning by eating something they found in a forest, mushroom picking is a Polish holiday craze. People love it, and because approximately 85% of Poland is covered with beautiful woodland it is one of the most common ways of spending free time outdoors. Poles are eager to wake up in the early morning to pick mushrooms before others, and they teach children the names of all the species of mushrooms as well as acquaint them with techniques of recognising if the mushroom is edible or lethally poisonous. Picking mushrooms is a serious thing in Poland and Polish mushroom dishes are usually world-class delights.
From that point, oczepiny has taken a circuitous route to become, nowadays, the moment when the most insane wedding games are organised. It usually starts with the popular throwing of the bride’s bouquet and then… anything can happen. If “carnival” in anthropology means moving the borders of what is socially acceptable and what is not, then oczepiny are a carnival par excellence. You may be asked to pass an orange to the auntie you don’t know without using your hands (imagine the embarrassment), you could be asked to change your gender for a while and dance the rumba or the tango with a person of the same sex, you could be asked to down far too much booze in a very short time, and so on.
