  Flowers sold in the streets
by PolishChick

It`s something you will notice right away- Polish people love flowers!!! While in Warsaw, or any other city in Poland, you will see so many flower shops, or just people standing around and selling them in the streets, that it might really surprise you.

There is a custom of giving flowers here. If you go and visit some Polish people at their house or you get invited to a dinner or party, you usually bring flowers for the woman- the host/owner of the house. Flowers are given for birthdays and namedays along with a gift. Also, Polish men give flowers to their ladies quite often!!! If you go on a date with a Polish girl, you usually give her flowers as well. You will often see one of the cutest views- a girl blushing and holding a rose, a guy by her side- a first date in Poland!!!

I really don`t know where it comes from, but it`s so nice and so Polish!!! :)
