7. Kutia , Christmas dessert recipe
Among all the Christmas recipes, we very often forgot about sweets that should also be served on Polish tables. Of course there is a variety of sweets to prepare, however, only few of them or typical for Christmas period. One of them is Kutia.

8. Bolek and Lolek cartoon
There are some animated TV series that we all love to come back too. Bolek and Lolek is children cartoon from the times of my childhood. It is about adventures of two young brothers. As it does not contain polish dialogues, it was promoted also outside of Poland.
