Ukrainian-Greek Wedding – Tradition and Culture

I had the pleasure of attending three weddings this year, and will share some of the special traditions and pictures from each of these weddings.
This wedding was very special to us, since the daughter of our long time friend was getting married, and also because the wedding ceremony was taking place in the same church as the filming of the, the ever so popular movie, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”.

Suburbangrandma Goes Urban

We really enjoyed the events we attended in these cities, as well as the site seeing.
We had a very busy summer this year, full of long distance traveling, and it’s not over yet.

I love watching the busy city life, and admire the convenience, but I enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the suburbs.

Saint Nicholas or Santa Claus???

Saint Nicholas, was the “gift giver” I was familiar with during my childhood. He had a white beard, was dressed in bishop’s garbs, carried a crozier, and arrived on a white horse. On December 6th, he was visiting well-behaved children, and placing candy and cookies under their pillows. If you were really good, then he would drop off more goodies on Christmas Eve. You also were expected to know your Catechism, in case he decided to quiz you, before leaving you a gift. We recited prayers and songs dedicated to St. Nicholas, instead of leaving him milk and cookies.
