Last year I prompted the forum for holiday pastries/baked goods that mark the season, so this year I'm starting a thread on holiday food traditions that make the time special.
What marks this time of year in your household, and in your favorite travel destinations?
This week at an office party, we had Polish and Ukrainian coworkers who had one that's new to me:
Throwing wet barley up on the ceiling so it sticks. You have to let it fall down naturally or risk bad luck in the coming year.
They say they can see the remnants of years past on the ceilings of their relatives homes!
They also tell me that it's bad luck to count the number of pierogies you put in the big pot.
What quirky doings have you come across?
