UKRAINIAN CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS - РІЗДВО
With the first day of Christmas yesterday, two more to come (in Ukrainian tradition, it's three days of Christmas), I'm sharing some of my articles on Ukrainian Christmas traditions. These I have written over many years, for The Ukrainian Weekly, an award-winning international English-language Ukrainian newspaper from New Jersey, edited by Roma Hadzevych.
Also, here is a YouTube (in four parts, so click on all of them) of my presentation about Christmas traditions at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) a few years ago.
This coming year I hope to do what I've been planning for a long time -- and have been encouraged by my dear faithful readers to do: I will be compiling my Christmas articles into a book. Later, will do the same with articles on other topics. It's mindboggling to think of how many of my articles are actually out there!
For starters, here are a few on some esoteric aspects of Ukrainian Christmas traditions.
I do look forward to hearing from you!
