A Polish Tradition

All parents wonder about their children's future.Will the infant sleeping peacefully in her crib become a doctor,a teacher,or a future president? Many Polish families follow an old tradition to determine what kind of person their child will turn into.On the child's first birthday,the parents set several objects on table.For example,they may set out a book, a piece of bread,a set of car keys,and a musical instrument.They then sit the child touch first? If the child touches the book,she will be a good student.If the child reaches for the car keys,he will travel far.If the child goes for the bread,she will love food.And if he touches the musical instrument, he will become a musician,of course!
