Christmas in Ukraine

January 5, 2017 at 9.06pm by

Christmas in Ukraine is celebrated on January 7 and for many Ukrainians is an important family holiday.

When Ukraine was part of the former Soviet Union, Christmas Day was not a public holiday but Christmas traditions were not forgotten and after Ukraine gained its independence in 1991, Christmas Day was made a public holiday. Many Ukrainian Christmas traditions are based on pre-Christian Pagan customs.

Ukrainians use 2 calendars at the same time! Orthodox Church life is based on the Gregorian calendar and everyday life is based on the Julian calendar. So, while Christmas is still on December 25 in the Julian calendar, it appears on January 7 in the Gregorian calendar.

Send your Christmas congratulations and best wishes to your special lady now as she celebrates Ukraine Christmas with her family
