Yeah, more or less like that, I think I wouldn't invent anything else to describe how to pronounce it.

Now enjoy breaking your tongue :-)))

Are these contraptions edible? [sugar, marzipan, etc.]?

No, I don't think so.

Maybe some people make them edible, but those traditional ones are usually made of wood, paper, metal etc.

Thank you so much for posting these. Poland Rocks. I hope I am able to get back to visit there one of these days. I was there in February, but to go during Easter of Christmas would be a dream trip.

When I was there it was so awesome to see so many people kneeling in prayer for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament when I would visit the Churches..not just old geezers like me, either-many young people. Truly, Poland beats with a Catholic heart.

I was particularly impressed with the beauty of hand-painted Polish "Pisanki" Easter eggs. Thanks for the great info on Polish Christmas!

Thanks for posting this!

My in-laws are over from Poland at the moment and they and Agnieszka (my wife) are preparng things for Wigilia even as I type!

In our house, we have a traditional Polish Christmas Eve and then I prepare a traditional English Christmas Dinner on the day itself.

Agnieszka is now only two weeks from giving birth...

Thank-you for the posting. Being Polish on my late father's side, this is very informitive. I did for a few years up to last year did the opacky pratice, but has taken a brake for this year. The nativity displays are truly a work of art. At least I know why I have a large number of nativity scenes myself. A Blessed Merry Christmas to you.
