Christmas wafer, a polish tradition celebrated on Christmas Eve. Oplatek is the unleavened wafer that is rectangular in shape with different Christmas images embossed. The Nativity, the Epiphany, the Virgin Mary with child, and the Star of Bethlehem. Tradition says, "Before partaking of the Christmas Eve meal, the family gathers around the table. The eldest member holds a large wafer and breaks off a piece to begin the ritual. The remaining wafer is passed on to another member while a prayer for loved ones is said. This continues until everyone at the table has a piece of the wafer. Finally, the family members consume their share quietly". These seasonal wafers are available in four assorted designs. Sealed bag of 100. Size 2 7/8" X 5 3/4".
