Guide to May Holidays in Ukraine

May holidays are a long-standing tradition in Ukraine from Soviet times. Usually, Ukrainians have two public holidays for the International Labor Day (1st and 2nd of May), one holiday for the Easter and one for the Victory day (9th of May).

Labor Day gradually lost its meaning after the collaps of USSR, but some political parties and unions still organize demonstrations on this day. 

This year, the official may holidays will consist of 6 days: April 30th, May 1st—May 3rd, May 7th—May 9th.

Guide to Ukrainian Easter Celebration

Why do Ukrainian people celebrate three Easters? Where are all the bunnies and egg hunts? Find it out below!

 

Ukrainians celebrate Easter different from Western Europeans. There is no candy, bunnies or presents. But still, it’s a very beautiful holiday connecting different traditions – Christian, pagan and folk ones.

Ukraine is a home to Orthodox, Catholic and Jewish people, and all these religions celebrate Easter on different days. So, some families can even celebrate two or three Easters! Some years, the Easters coincide on the same day too.
