Andrzejki (pronounced /an-dzey-ki/) is the night before St. Andrew's Day (in Poland it is celebrated on 29th November).
Although traditionally the holiday was only observed by young girls, today both young men and women join the party to see their future.
During Andrzejki, your fortune is told in the form of wax: hot wax is poured into cold water, often through a key, and the resulting shape is supposed to predict your future.
But whether you believe in fortune-telling or not, today Andrzejki is mainly about having fun with your friends and enjoying yourself.
