Kūčios is the traditional Christmas Eve supper in Lithuania, held on December 24. On the evening there is Twelve-dish Christmas Eve supper served.

Before eating family shares Plotkelis.One of the parents or grandparents divide it to each member of the family with a wish.

Researchers believe, that this traditional festival had preserved many relicts of pagan beliefs and rituals. That's because after eating people try to predict the future with magical rituals. It is also believed, that that night people can understand what cattles and other animals are talking.People also believe that exactly on midnight water turns into wine which is reference to a miracle done by Jesus.

Lithuanian traditions are somewhat similar to Wigilia in Poland.
