Ukrainian Christmas (Rizdvo) (Dec 25)

Links to classroom and activities about Ukrainian Christmas

Important Note

Note to Teachers: 

This year is the first time that Ukrainians will celebrate Christmas on 25th rather than January 7th.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed a law that changes the date of Christmas in Ukraine in order to separate Ukrainians from the Russian Orthodox Church that celebrates Christmas on January 7th.
