We are coming back with description of twelve polish Christmassy traditions.
7. Sharing a special wafer when exchanging Christmas greetings
Second the most important thing during Christmas Eve is to share a special wafer when exchanging Christmas greetings. It is a connection with the Last Supper when the Christ set the Sacrament and shared a special wafer with the twelve Apostles. He also called himself a bread of life. The special wafer is a symbol of Christ. What more, sharing a bread, even the last crumb should symbolize reciprocal sacrifice for each other. During sharing a special wafer we should forgive all the hard feelings and wish only honest wishes.
