On January 6th, a Christmas Eve is observed by many Ukrainians, Greeks, Orthodox Christians, and others, who follow the Julian calendar.
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.
I was lucky to have been invited to a Multicultural Evening, at a local Elementary School.
There were beautiful displays of artifacts and ethnic foods from several countries such as: Ukraine, Poland, Ireland, Australia, South America, India, China, Philippines, Scotland, and Africa. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful ethnic dance performance by Irish, India and Philippines dancers.
It was fascinating to sample the different ethnic foods, and admire the artifacts.
Spring is my favorite season of the year.
It wakes up Mother Nature from its winter sleep, brings back life, hope, and beauty of nature.
Spring inspires me to spend more time outdoors, walking, gardening, and enjoying nature.
Spring also brings Easter; a very religious holiday for me, filled with Ukrainian traditions, including Traditional Ukrainian Easter Baskets, and Pysanky.
I would like to inform you about my intent to take a temporary break from posting to my blog, due to the current unrest in Ukraine.
I am following the old saying: “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen”.
I am “getting out of my kitchen” , since I am totally consumed by the current events in Ukraine, a country of my ancestors, and current motherland of many of my relatives and friends.
I am so thankful for living in a truly democratic country, where my human rights and freedom of speech are not violated.
