Thanks for visiting my website about Ukrainian traditions and customs! Celebrating Christmas and Easter is always a big deal in my home and it is important that I incorporate part of my Ukrainian heritage and share it with my family and friends.
I grew up in western Canada and was immersed in Ukrainian culture from a young age–attending a Ukrainian Orthodox church and Ukrainian language classes, and learning about Ukrainian culture through dance, music, embroidery, and crafts. Last but not least, I ate a lot of Ukrainian food!
Interestingly, while I was growing up, many people in Ukraine were not attending church or speaking the language, because they were still part of the USSR. Therefore, I feel even more fortunate that my grandparents, mother, and our many Ukrainian friends shared this culture with me and helped me to learn about the culture and many traditions. Participating in these traditions and activities has helped to keep the culture alive!
Thank you again for visiting my site. I hope that you find my stories, recipes, crafts, and other information helpful as you prepare for to celebrate Ukrainian Christmas and Easter each year. My goal is to develop an online community of Ukrainian devotees that have a place to share experiences and stories about this wonderful heritage.
If you ever need a hand or have ay questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
Kathryn (a.k.a. ꓗaтруся)
