Do Poles celebrate ''the old new year''?

I don't know if this is the right forum for this question or if it has been asked this question before, but simply do Poles celebrate ''the old new year'' which is on the 14th of January like some European countries?

No, since Poland is a Catholic country, not Orthodox (I mean in general). I guess all the Orthodox Church believers in Poland celebrate New Year on 14th of January.

Right, that makes sense.

Other than a toast to the old year - let's hope the new one's better that is an excuse to consume another glass of vodka at new year.

I didn't realise anyone celebrated the old year (other than so many people around the world who seem stuck in the past, but that's usually a year much longer ago).

Okay, so the answer is still no then.
