Orthodox cross

The holidays are not over in Ukraine. According to the Julian calendar, followed by Christian Orthodox Churches in Ukraine, today is Christmas day. Since the majority of Ukrainians are Orthodox, the entire country is running around excited. The day is celebrated with family, church, caroling, bejeweled trees, presents and of course, a huge feast. And when I say huge, I don’t mean USA huge, I mean Ukrainian huge – This country knows how to eat! Mothers have been preparing for days and will probably have food to last for days after as well.
