They certainly did and still do from what I can see! Funnily enough though I was never really steeped in Polish culture. The area my Dad was from was Bialystok in the NE of Poland, quite close to Belarus and the Ukraine. My Grandad was Russian so my cultural upbringing was quite an odd mix! When my Grandma re-married some years after my Grandads death it was in a Russian Orthodox church in Cheetham Hill and the do was at the Ukrainian club in the same vicinity. My enduring memories of it are the singing during the ceremony itself and the dancing on the tables with a bottle of vodka in each hand afterwards :-)

Maybe I should put this on one of the England threads!
