Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, my dear friends! So very little time is left before the Happy Holidays – Christmas and New Year. This is the most wonderful time for me. I like the atmosphere enveloped in a fairy tale. People decorate their homes with garlands. Lights sparkle on the Christmas trees. And on the fireplace hangs stockings with sweets! Ah, what a miracle!

Ukrainian Catholics celebrate Christmas on December 24, and Orthodox Christians on January 7.

Sviata Vecheria

The Christmas Eve Supper or Sviata Vecheria (Holy Supper) brings the family together to partake in special foods and begin the holiday with many customs and traditions. This traditions which reach back to antiquity. The rituals of the Christmas Eve are dedicated to God . And to the welfare of the family, and to the remembrance of the ancestors. Family gathers to begin supper with the appearance of the first star. There are twelve courses in the Supper. Because according to the Christian tradition each course is dedicated to one of Christ’s Apostles. The first course is always kutia. It is the main dish of the whole supper.

Ukrainian Christmas songs

While many of the Ukrainian Christmas Eve customs are of a solemn nature, the custom of caroling is joyful and merry. Ukrainian Christmas songs or carols have their origins in antiquity, as do many other traditions practiced at Christmas time. The very popular Ukrainian carol in the United states, “Carol of the Bells”, in its originality is a shchedrivka. The very popular Ukrainian carol in the United states, “Carol of the Bells”, in its originality is a shchedrivka. This song tells about a swallow who came to the landowner’s house. First the swallow asks him to go out and say how rich he is. After swallow asks how many calves he has and so on. 🙂

Our family decorates the house with pleasure. It creates an incredibly festive atmosphere! A coniferous wreath decorate the front door, of course!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I really like handmade gifts. As rare thing can become your heirloom. Our heirloom is “Grandfather Frost” ( Santa Claus) passed down from generation to generation. We place this symbol under the Christmas tree every year. Our Santa Claus is over 60 years old!

I can’t wait for the holidays! Do you like Christmas? Write in the comments what heirlooms you have. It is very interesting.
