Ukrainian Christmas Eve Recipes

By January 5, 2014

Follow me on:

Ukrainian Christmas Eve Holy Supper is known as Sviaty Vechir. This meatless meal can consist of as many as 12 to 13 courses, representing the apostles and Christ. The Ukrainian Christmas Eve supper varies from family to family and region to region, but many of the traditions and foods are shared across Slavic countries, in particular Russia, Poland and Slovakia.

For Orthodox Christians, like Ukrainians, Russians and Carpatho-Rusyns (Bulgarians and Romanians follow the Gregorian calendar) who follow the Julian calendar, Jan. 6 and 7 are Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Try making a Sviaty Vechir meal this Jan. 6 and celebrate Christmas Eve all over again.

Dobryj vechir, Sviaty vechir. Dobrym liudiam na zdorovja. -- "Good evening, Holy evening. To good people for good health."
