Unleavened wafers are baked from wheat flour and pure water, usually rectangular in shape and very thin, they are identical in composition to the round tiles that become host after the consecration at Mass in the Roman Catholic Church. It is only a reminder of the Body of Christ used in private homes, wafers lack of sanctification by a priest or bishop. Wafers wafers are embossed with Christmas related religious images, ranging from the crib, especially the Virgin Mary with the Child Jesus, the Star of Bethlehem.
Breaking the wafer - survived a habit of breaking the wafer with animals and the belief that at midnight the animals speak with a human voice.
GIFTS - formerly obtained them only on December 6, but at the end of the eighteenth century, especially in wealthy homes, began also bestowed on Christmas Eve
FOR TODAY - survived a belief that if the day of Christmas Eve the first guest in the house will be a man, it will bring happiness and peace to this house.
