Breaking News – Christmas Utica NY Vinny Bulawa is the Polish Santa!
You be the judge.
The Real Twas the Night Before Christmas
Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, The fridge was half empty not enough for a mouse. The plates were set out on the table no fear, In hopes that Vinny Bulawa soon would be there.
The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of pierogi danced in their heads. And mama with her forks and I with my knives, Had just set the table for a nice big surprise.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow, Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below. When, what to my wondering nostrils should smell, But pierogi, kapusta and kielbasa as well.
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof, The thumping and bumping of each big boot. As I shook my head, and was turning around, Down the chimney Vinny came with a bound.
He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot. A bundle of food he had flung on his back, And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And filled all the plates, then turned with a jerk. Pierogi, kielbasa, and sledzie of course, Ham & cheese and not just borscht.
He laid his finger aside his nose, He gave a nod, and up the chimney he rose! He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away he flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of site, Shop at the Pulaski Meat Market Tonight!

Did You Know?
The first Polish settlers arrived in America 12 years before the Pilgrims. On October 1, 1608 they arrived at the Jamestown Virginia settlement about one year after the original English settlers on the banks of the James River.
It was because of the Polish craftsmen’s skills that they were invited to join the voyage on the ships Mary & Margaret to Jamestown. They were to establish a glass industry, but their first contribution was to construct a fresh water well which was badly needed to provide for the survival of the colony.
Living was hard, but despite the climate and living conditions they were able to export the first commercial products of glass, tar and pitch from America to England.
Because they were denied equal rights in the first Virginia Assembly they staged the first labor strike in America on July 30, 1619. The strike was not for money or because of working conditions; it was for equal voting rights and the same democratic rights of the English.
Polish Americans have much to celebrate at Thanksgiving and can be very proud of the contributions the first Polish settlers accomplished in America.
Put a little Polish in your Thanksgiving celebration in Utica NY, with traditional Polish foods from the Pulaski Meat Market. Enjoy some Kiełbasa, Pierogi, Gołąbki, and Polish Ham.
