/ Americans of Polish descent. How many of us are on Polish forums?
how many have mixture of polish with some other nationality?
what do you still know and still celebrate that was part of your familys traditions?
I am here! I read a lot and post rarely. I am an American of mixed Polish and Ukrainian descent.
I do still talk(well, write) with family in Poland. Although, funnily enough, the relatives I still have contact with, are descendants of my Ukrainian side of the family. Where they live(and always have) is in Poland, near the border crossing at Medyka.
Most of the traditons we still celebrate have to do with Christmas, and food.
When I was young, in the early 90's, I got to spend a couple of summers in Poland in the summer language program at Jagiellonian University, and also got to meet my relatives in person then. At the time, I was very tempted to stay. Then it was very easy for Americans to get jobs teaching English. What ended up dissuading me was the quality of health care then. I had a couple of friends have some really bad experiences after falling ill there. Were I only that age again now...
