That's in Poland too but it's in case a homeless person or someone with no place to go would come on Christmas to have a place ready

It's not fancy pants, it's red underwater. Red is supposed to protect against bad lucky.

This makes no sense. But then again i'm from the U.S, so I have to make fun of/question other countries' beliefs, and customs.

In my experience, both the boys and girls would use cedar, the bundles represented their personal wishes

I've never heard of this! We do put hay under the table cloth but it symbolises the hay Jesus was put in when he was born :) Another wonderful tradition we have is sharing the holy wafer between each of the guests, right before the Christmas Eve dinner. We then tell each other good wishes and eat a piece of the holy wafer from the person who gives you the wishes. :)
