Our unexpected guest for Wigilia

26 Dec

On Christmas Eve, it is our Community tradition to celebrate the Polish Wigilia. As we prepared our Polish food the best way we could here in Haiti, we worked diligently all day to be ready for the first star to appear so we could begin our solemn feast. As a sign of our Christian hospitality, we always set an extra place setting for Jesus to come. Everything was ready, when we heard  a child  singing by our door. We looked at each other and knew we had an unexpected guest for dinner; Donaldson joined us for Wigilia. We shared with him the wafer and explained our tradition as we offered each other peace and pardon. He then tried some of our Polish food. As it got darker, he knew he had to get home. It was a joy to have our unexpected guest join us for Wigilia.
