The Tradition:

The tradition of the Oplatki originated in Poland as early as the seventeenth century.  The Oplatki are enjoyed by families, typically right before the Christmas Eve meal. The entire family will gather around the table with the Oplatek. Generally, the eldest member of the family will begin the ritual by breaking off a piece of the wafer and passing it to another family member with a blessing. This blessing can simply consist of what you desire for your loved one in the upcoming year – whether it be good health, success, or happiness. The purpose of this act is primarily to express one's love for each member of his or her family.

The significance of the Oplatki Christmas wafer is in that it shadows the Eucharistic meal Catholics participate in at each Mass.  Just as we share in the Eucharist as one family in Christ and receive Christ’s love through the Eucharist, the Oplatki allows for one’s immediate family to come together and share the love they have for one another. 

Although this tradition is primarily enjoyed by the human members of the family, even the family pets can partake.  Traditionally, this corresponds to the animals that were present at Christ’s birth.  However, in current times, this can also represent the important role that pets play in the family.  The colored Oplatki are made especially for pets, although both colors are fit for human consumption.  

The Oplatki tradition is one that is easy and fun to introduce to the family at Christmas time. All it requires is a simple wafer paired with love and affection, and the willingness to share it. This is a heartwarming tradition that will enhance your family’s time together during the Christmas season.

    What a year! It got down to Christmas Eve and we began to worry. But, our oplatki's came in that day for our Wigilia meal. One thing that went well in 2020. Thank you.

    Ordered about 12/14. Expected delivery 12/17. Received 12/28. They asked for a review I stated I couldn’t because I didn’t wish to be negative but I still had not received it. Nobody even bothered to respond. So we missed it on Christmas Eve and I will avoid ordering from tgem again.

    Thank you for such quick service ! You bet I will order from you next year! I can’t thank you enough for your quick service! The wafers are a family tradition and has been for 40 years. We went to our local religion store to buy them only to be told they were sold out. They gave me your web site and I ordered them on Monday and had them in the mail by that Saturday! Your
