Vesekh Svyat or Happy Holidays

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Bohdan, Jan 7, 2006.

  1. That should be Veselekh!

    To all the Ukrainians and other ethnic groups celebrating according to the Julian calendar.
    Today , Jan 7th is actually Christmas day. The evening of the 6th is when we traditionally start celebrating with 12 meatless dishes, waiting for the first star to come out, then out to midnight mass and caroling the next couple of days.

    So to all who celebrate, and as well to all who don't

    Veselekh svyat! ( happy holidays}
    This is an picture of my mom making perogies ( I did a step by step pictoral recipe on my smugmug mom's perogies are the world's best!)

    And while the women cook...the men play ( my apologies to all the women out there for that statement)

    Hello Bohdan,

    Happy Christmas! And thanks for sharing a picture of your mom preparing your favorites. Wish I could taste them! (Thanks for the pictorial recipe hint - I'll check out your site.)

    All the best to you and your family!
  3. Hey Bob, hope your holidays are great. Love the picture of your mom.
  4. Veselekh svyat! Bob.

    I went through your smugmug gallery, the perogies sure look delicious.

    Great shot. Happy holidays. I don't know what perogies are, but I bet they taste good. Nothing beats mom's home cooking.
  8. Happy (belated) Holidays Bohdan! Very nice images, I'm sure you had a great time.

    Merry Christmas

    I love your photos. Sharing in the cultures of others is one of my favorite parts of online forums.
  10. Thanks Terri, Frits and Torben.

    Preserving our parents culture is important to me as well.
