Yesterday was Christmas for Orthodox Christians who follow the Gregorian calendar -- or for those who love Christmas so much they need it twice a year.
As a child I was one of those two-Christmases-a year-people because my father's mother is Russian.
Two Orthodox Christmases ago I attended a dinner at a Ukranian community hall in Surrey. So nice to hear the songs again, experience the thunder and lightning of those dances. Plus the designs and their relationship to those dances.
Hopak! (Or Gopak, as the Cossacks say.)
