Under the old Julian calendar still used by Ukrainian Catholics, today is Christmas. My Rare One and I are going tonight with a group of friends to a local restaurant called Taste of Ukraine. There we will enjoy the traditional feast of 12 meatless dishes. Usually this feast is eaten on Ukrainian Christmas Eve, but the restaurant booked up right away for that night. Luckily they offer the feast on two other evenings as well. I had to reserve our tickets way back at the beginning of November -- this is a popular feast here in Edmonchuk!
