Polish Culture

June 18 2009 Polish Culture Newsletter

Hello to all of you!

The weather is fabulous and one can eventually feel Summer. But I hope that wonderful weather does not keep everybody away from computers. At least it does not keep me.

Another week has passed and another article has popped up on BellaOnline Polish Culture Site. With this one I decided to go back to my memories of bed time stories. Some of them were silent, other included dialogues... but they were all interesting and brought the children into the world of imagination. Nowadays, however, Polish television is flooded with foreign cartoons. There is nothing bad in it, but where did all the Polish cartoons go? In my latest article I remind the most popular Polish animated TV series...

The best Polish cartoons
Polish bed time stories for children would bring the audience into the world of imagination, animals or naughty children that always happily get out of troubles. The period of the best Polish animated series was between 1960 and 1980.

And here is one of the previously missed articles.
The Fat Thursday may be over but there is never bad time to try out sweet specialties from grandmas table. If eating sweets is obligatory, it seems to be perfect day!

Fat Thursday feast
The feast of Fat Thursday is celebrated shortly before the Lent. On that day citizens of Poland (as well as Catholic parts of Germany) consume great amounts of sweets. Among the most popular specialties are paczki and faworki.
