31 December - Sylwester in Poland
The holiday itself of bidding farewell to the old year and welcoming the new one was born only at the turn of the 20th century. Initially celebrated only in the wealthier strata of society, the custom gradually made its way into the lives of poorer people. At the beginning of the 20th century, local customs for experiencing New Year's Eve nights emerged. In Denmark, for example, one jumped off a chair at midnight, and in Spain, since 1909, one grape has been eaten with each strike of the clock. In many countries (including Poland) the traditional drink then is champagne.
New Year's Eve - the eve of the New Year, the day before the New Year - December 31 (Sylvester's name day; in the Catholic Church, as the liturgical memory of Pope Sylvester I), when the end of the old year and the beginning of the new year are celebrated, representing a time of lavish parties and balls, toasts, fireworks, firecrackers or laser shows.
It's time to start planning for New Year's Eve! You can spend this special evening away from home, enjoying the attractions of Polish cities.
