In Poland every family starts dinner on Christmas Eve looking at the sky to see the star.
This Polish custom is directly connected to Christian belief that the Star of Bethlehem guided wise men to the birthplace of Jesus.
Great conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn can be seen now every night, for a least 10 more days.
Last time this astral event happened was during the winter solstice, eight hundred years ago.
Based on NASA reports is a pure coincidence that this year, two largest planets in the solar system were just 0.1 degrees apart on December 21st but for many people this has a special meaning.
Some believe that seeing a Christmas star will give them special power, others are convinced that the wish will come true.
