On Saturday it was Orthodox Christmas and we had a simple dinner with family and friends. Doesn't really feel like a holiday, but it's nice to celebrate two Christmases :)

  4. Hi Elena! It's so lovely to see this post. I grew up in my Grandmother's home (here in NY) celebrating the same holiday. She was from Odessa, Ukraine. Even after her passing we continue to celebrate the holiday with a small feast of food she use to make. Verhuny is always our dessert. =)

  9. Elena, sadly no. My sister and I use to know the basic when we were younger but over the years we lost it. My Grandmother traveled to the U.S. with her sister and parents, all of which passed away before I was born. So as you can imagine she used the language very little with no one to talk to. It's something my sister and I talk about learning in the near future. =)
