Ukraine celebrates Christmas! / Україна святкує Різдво!

For the Ukrainian people Christmas is the most important family holiday of the whole year. We start celebrating it on January 6-th with Sviata Vecheria (Holy Supper). The first course is always kutia. It is the main dish of the whole supper. Then comes borshch (beet soup). This is followed by a variety of fish - baked, broiled, fried, cold in aspic, fish balls, marinated herring and so on. Then come varenyky (boiled dumplings filled with cabbage, potatoes, buckwheat grains, or prunes. There are also holubtsi (stuffed cabbage).
On January 7-th Ukrainian children go from house to house and sing koliadky (Christmas carols).
Dear friends! I wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
And here is a Ukrainian carol for you:
