Five Beautiful and Meaning Filled Polish ChristmasTraditions

Kathy, a Polish American living on the east coast of the US with her husband and three children, shares her adventures while raising three year old twins and making delicious, child friendly recipes on her blog Polwig.com. Part of her family lives here in the States and part in Poland. 

To see just how close her ties are to Polish traditions, read this recent post in which she shares amazingly beautiful images of her Mother's Thanksgiving Feast. Don't miss this - go visit - you will be so glad you did! Most likely you will be wishing, as am I, that you were on the guest list!

In Japan, Christmas is Celebrated With KFC, Lights and Romance.

A special post created to share Christmas in Japan by Arielle.

Arielle is an American currently living with her husband in Okinawa, Japan and over this past year has become a virtual friend. She is not a blogger so it is all the more special that she made this post to share with my readers.

French Gingerbread Men for St. Nicholas Day!

To celebrate St. Nicholas Day, I made gingerbread men!

But not just any gingerbread men!

Celebrate! It's St. Nicholas Eve. Sinterklaas is Coming!

St. Nicholas - Sinterklaas - has been here! Since it is almost mid-night in Amsterdam, he had to come a bit early to the Pacific Northwest!

And I was ready for him this year! Wooden shoes and Pepernoten! I know, I know, carrots are traditionally left for Sinterklaas' donkey, but since I am always, always good, I left Pepernoten!

Sinterklaas left Clementines, peppermint sticks, chocolate coins AND lovely Dutch Licorice!  There is no better Licorice than Dutch Licorice!

Men Love This One Too! Minty Chocolate Bars

Another cookie that men love to eat! At for least the men in my life - these have been a favorite for years. There is just something irresistible about mint and chocolate together.

Mint Chocolate Bars is a very easy cookie treat to make. It takes a bit of time for each layer to cool between steps, but nothing hard here! Make up a batch and watch them disappear!
