Ukrainian Christmas Eve is not only very rich in traditional foods prepared freshly that day (today in our busy lifestyle most of us prepare many food items ahead of time), and shared by the family during the Christmas Eve 12-course meatless dinner, but also myriad traditions are practiced before and after the meal.
I would like to share links to some of my previous posts about Ukrainian Christmas traditions, as well as few recipes for Ukrainian Traditional Christmas Eve dishes.
