Only the name is the same but there are no turkey dinners, Santa parades or American football matches on TV during the celebration of Polłand's Święto Dziękczynienia. Intiated several years ago as an annual event, it is meant to thank Divine Providence for the re-emergence of Free Poland at the polls in June 1989. Thousands of Poles marched across Warsaw to Wilanów in a procession bearing the relics of St Andrew Bobola, the capital's patron saint. President Komorowski told worshippers that a Christian cannot be sad, because Christianity is a religion of joy and optimism.

Maybe later- I'm going out soon. But anyway- thanks for telling me about this one. Not my sort of thing but I like to know what's going on.
