Спасибі за наступні мій блог.
Okay that’s about it for the Ukrainian writing! As you are aware, I am still learning about the cyrillic alphabet and basic Ukrainian language at the Taras Shevchenko Ukrainian School. It has been a great year and in my humble opinion, we are learning a lot, as well as building up many personal friendships as we struggle with developing a better understanding of vocabulary and conjugating verbs, and, oh, I could go on and on. To say the least, it’s mind-boggling but it is so much fun!
Tonight is Christmas Eve for many Ukrainians. All day yesterday and part of today, I have been busy preparing for the Christmas Eve supper (Svyata Vecherya). This supper is part of the celebrations. But I had a wonderful day because of a very different reason. It may sound silly but I was able to tune in Ukrainian Christmas carols from the Dauphin radio station. All day long, these carols filled my kitchen. I hummed and sang along while chopping onions, grinding poppy seeds and stirring the borscht. It was very relaxing and brought a flood of memories back to me about growing up in the prairies.
It would be great to be there now with my family and friends. However, I think that the memories will be fine right now. You see, it’s 8C here tonight and it is -21C in Manitoba. So I’ll think warm thoughts for everyone back there and pray that you all have a wonderful Christmas Eve, and that the temperatures rise as well.
Христос народжується !
