Ukrainian Christmas

Tonight everyone will be with their families for Holy Supper. A friend told me not much will be happening tonight but tomorrow there will be concerts in the centre and lots of festivities happening. I have, only today, requested off work for tomorrow, so I have a feeling they won’t allow it. The woman who grants time off doesn’t like me either haha we will see. I will still go to the centre tonight anyways to see what’s going on.

I love the Christmas markets they have set up here. Little wooden huts where they sell things like chocolates, wine, wool slippers, scarves, traditional Ukrainian trinkets, dolls, toys, tshirts, all sorts! I’ve got a few small gifts and some chocolate to send to my parents for a late late Christmas present))

On New Years, there were so many people in the centre. Music playing, all the pubs and nightclubs full. It was a lot of fun. On Rynok Sq, everyone was drunk and dancing. They had a stage set up with different music and selling beer and mulled wine at some stalls. It was really great. We got home maybe around 6am and instead of waking up with a hangover, I had a cold(((((( boooo!!! Finally today I feel a little better. This week I’ve still gone for a few runs, and out drinking)) hehe))
