Polish Traditions - STO LAT
Sto Lat! - May you live a hundred years
This Traditional Polish
Song is often sung during a birthday celebration
To commemorate Poland's victory over the
Tatars, in 1241, the Lajkonik Parade is held each Spring in
the Market Place of Krakow, Poland.
A disguised Tatar warrior with a
hobbyhorse fastened to the waist, called Lajkonik (lie-KOH-neek),
in Polish, prances around chasing people with his mace
celebrating the occasion with dancing and merrymaking. It is
said that if he touches you with his mace, it brings good luck
throughout the year!
