Greetings from Edmonchuk
Long-time readers of this blog know that I am a major Ukrainian wannabe. Personally, I don't have a single drop of Ukrainian blood, but that is not going to stop me in my fanaticism for all things Ukrainian. For example, I've dated a lot of Ukrainians over the years including, of course, My Rare One. I've lived all my adult life in cities with big Ukrainian communities -- Winnipeg and Edmonchuk, I mean, Edmonton. And my favourite food is perogies!
Under the old Julian calendar used by the Orthodox Christian Church, today is Orthodox Christmas Day. But on the Canadian prairies, we simply call it "Ukrainian Christmas" because Ukrainians are the single largest group who mark the occasion here. Today's post is not going to be particularly Christmassy, however, but it will pay heartfelt homage to my favourite ethnic group!
Her Royal Highness the cat helped me with this post and, wouldn't you know it, every single image she picked has a cat in it!
EDITORIAL COMMENT by HRH:
Of course they're all cats, silly human! Everything is better with cats!
Have I not trained you to realize that already? *facepaw*
I must give a special shout-out of thanks to that good Ukrainian boy, Cal of Calvin's Canadian Cave of Cool who created the captioned memes and from whose blog I believe I stole all the other images too, LOL!
