- So our new Polish neighbour knocked
As Stumpy says most Europeans do a big meal on 24th. Large meal at 10pm in Austria so that they are all done by midnight for the gift giving. Epiphany is bigger on 5/6 January for a lot of the Catholic countries. Must go and ask if the neighbour wants to glug some whisky on Christmas Eve.Posted 4 years ago
Carp is the Polish Christmas centrepiece, swimming in the tub for a few days, eaten on Xmas eve and there must be 12 dishes in total apparently. I still think it would good for them to see a blackened turkey with raw insides, then a family bust up before granny falls asleep in front of the Queen after too much sherry.Posted 4 years agobinnersSubscriber
Buy them some decent vodka or whiskey, but…. Whatever you do, don’t start drinking it with them! Seriously! Under any circumstances! From making the same mistake myself, on a few occasions …. If A bottle of vodka lasts 20 minutes, then they’re clearly on a go slow. That’s their equivalent of a leisurely pint!

Lol at some of the comments. Having been to Poland (some rural bits) I know what they are like for drinking! There are 4 of them next door and they seem friendly and amicable (I had to go round the 3rd day after they moved in as them being noisy til 4 in the morn for 2 nights was a bit much!! They were very apologetic and promised to tame it down).Posted 4 years agoandypaul99Member
Our Polish lads at work are more courteous and polite than most of the indigenous staff.
Its strange they are like this in the UK, as my experiences with them in other countries has been quite different, some Poles can be quite agressive esp driving. They have a bit of a rep in other East European countries as being pushy and rude.Posted 4 years agoTreksterSubscriber

This is definitely my daughters experience when she had some move in next door to her. Events included a stabbing and doors getting kicked in during the small hours when they were tanked up on the booze. Made the local drug dealer across the street look tame 🙄 At least it was only the police who kicked his front door in….Posted 4 years ago
But having said that I biked with a guy who was working here, sending money home to his family who were running a haulage business. His aim was to buy his dad and wife a new Merc each, some new lorries and then return home ❗
There are lots of Poles around here from WW2 and they are mostly all good guys with some “rough diamonds” amongst them same as in all walks of life.
