Current family beliefs and values

Wisniewski origined in Poland, and the name derives from "wisnia" meaning "cherry". Means "one from the town of the cherry tree"

Some Polish traditions and values that my family continue today is number 1, every Easter we have a homemade Polish dish, mushroom soup. The mushroom soup is served for breakfast, it contains Polish sausage, and hard boiled eggs. Before you make it, you take all ingredients for the soup to their catholic church so it can be blessed by priest. My grandpa and grandma did this and so did my grandpa's parents. Number two is a Christmas tradition. Every Christmas my grandpa's family has a communion waifer, which is a larger replica of the smaller communion waifer. Everybody would go around and break a piece off, it wished everybody health, wealth, and happiness, then they said that in polish. The meal is supposed to be meatless. They eat pirogi noodles and barley. Number 3 is a value, most Polish people are catholic. My dad, grandpa, his dad are/were Catholic, which is what polish people's religion is.
