Are young Polish people following traditional values?

I am curious. If today Polish people in my generation in their 20s are still following their traditions, Catholic beliefs, christmases, etc...

I am a Polish gal who almost grew up in Canada and I am starting to see that more young Polish people in Poland are not really following their traditions? maybe I'm wrong? Friends in Poland stopped going to church every sunday etc... Is this a normal trend? Some are becoming agnostic too.

How is the society now in Poland? among Polish people? more open mind? different values? more westernized?

Just curious =)

Thanks!

I think that it depends.

Yes, I think that we're more open minden and westernized. Diffrent values? It's hard to tell it depend on the person :)

From some time now it's really popular among young people to complain about church and priests and to not go to the church in the sunday, but still there are a lot of young people that going to church regullary but they're telling that they're not going because it's "trendy" or people that are saing that the're belive in Good but don't belive in church.

But I think that majority still is very traditional and such behavior is frowned upon (especially by the older generation).

Mods, this isn't about traditional values. Kids live with their parents due to shortage of available and affordable alternatives.

Yes, similar in Spain, Italy etc. A lot is about the availability of accommodation.
