christmas, polish style

I think I will be hosting Christmas again this year. Not that there will be a big group to cater for - just four adults and one baby, but I was thinking it might be nice to introduce some traditions. My mum was born in Poland and I grew up with Borscht (beetroot) soup and Russian salad as well as poppyseed cake. Not that this is necessarily Polish Christmas fare, but it will be good to incorporate my heritage somehow. As many of you know I am partial to the wares of Laikonik, which is designed by the very talented Kasia Jacquot, who incorporates Polish folk designs into everything from children's "first year" books to wrapping paper. So I love these tree decorations, and the simplicity of the tree. Something I can definitely achieve, and fit into my teeny tiny apartment. Would love to hear what family traditions you have over Christmas time.
