Wow, welcome back!
Sorry, no. Sth much funnier. :):)
We are talking about low roofs, not about what covers them. Gont means shingles.

Dach z przypustnicą? I don't think it's right but can't think of anything else.

Dach z przypustnicą?

Sorry, no.

Ganek

Sorry, no. Ganek is a roofing over the front door, while here it spreads along the entire wall of the church.

Strzecha

No, it is just covering on the roof.

Let me repeat - I mean the whole construction of a low roof which is attached to the external wall of the church, practically encompassing the whole of it.

Hint - it originated to protect the believers who had to stay outside the church (eg. waiting for or during the mass service ) from adverse weather conditions.

Arcades called Soboty. Named for people who arrived on the Saturday for the Sunday service.

Arcades called Soboty.

Yes, exactly! Soboty spelled with lower case s means saturdays. :)::):)

Soboty spelled with lower case s means saturdays.

Interesting. In England days of the week are always capitalized. Didn't realize they weren't in Poland.

We call them Ganek (porches) in the U.S.

What is it about?

Is this a special occasion as such and the phones are being collected so that everyone can actually talk to each other without distraction? A wedding or Wigilia for example. From the little I can see of clothing, the men are wearing shoes and trousers so it appears to be a formal setting. Either that or maybe teachers confiscating student phones?

So are they in Poland. :):) I was talking about soboty aka arcades not Soboty aka Saturdays. hahaha

We call them Ganek (porches) in the U.S.

Ganek is different - it is usually elevated while soboty aren`t.

teachers confiscating student phones? matura

Yes, collecting phones before the exam. The photo was taken about 5 years ago, funny boxes aren`t used anymore - today students simply mustn`t enter the exam hall with any devices like that.

And that's where you're wrong. We write the days of the week with lowercase letters. However, there are exceptions. Do you know what ones?
OP pawian 222 | 24,343

there are exceptions

Exactly! And those exceptions are more important than the remaining standard usages. Ha!!!! E.g, Sobota spelled with a capital letter is in two weeks` s time!! I can`t wait! :):):):)

The baskets are decorated, painted eggs, sausage, salt, and a green branch. Something else?

Something else?

In addition, white linen to go in the basket, greenery, bread/babka. Friends of mine usually put a sugar lamb in there that their kids have made. I think horseradish is also included.
