WARSAW, POLAND – Dożynki is a harvest festival that takes place in the countryside towns of Poland on August 28 following the end of the harvest season.  

Before the festival, many decorations are made from hay, crops, and farming equipment that are then placed by nearby roads and houses. The locals glorify Christ during the holiday through the making of huge crowns made completely out of crops and flowers which are then brought to the church where the people gather to sing Polish hymns and worship songs.  

The festival lasts for three days and offers authentic Polish food, music, and a taste of the unique culture. Many parades go through the streets including big tractors hauling different sceneries and decorative props. The fun and exciting festival leaves many Poles coming back each year to gather and glorify God.

About the Contributor
Julian Trzesniowski
Class of 2027 Student Journalist
Julian Trzesniowski is a journalist, a part of the student publications here at JCS. He moved here to the US from Poland 6 years ago and from then has been at work persuing a better education than he could have ever gotten back home. Living in Poland, he experienced the good and the bad of the community, and seeing how people can end up if they choose to go down the wrong path, he became aware of his friends and the ways they could lead him. Moving from Warsaw, Poland was very difficult for Julian, as he knew little to no English and was used to the culture that he was surrounded with in Europe. Seeking to fit into this community, he has been drawn closer to God through the many great teachers and staff at here at JCS. But as years passed, he began to miss what life was like back home, not knowing the reason why this change was for the better of his future. Over time, he saw all the great opportunities he had ahead of him and became grateful for what his parents had done for him. He then became known to this culture and soon grew into the great journalist he is today.
