Christmas holidays always carry in them a special meaning – it’s a story about the birth of light and hope, even if darkness reigns around.
And now more than ever it is important for us to remember that there is still light around, that we can share with each other.
“Every Christmas is like a separate piece of the eternity. As if a separate day in which the past, present and future are gathered. Christmas and the christmas carols are our way to combine times, to go out of time.
This is how the thread of transmission of generations, the existence of traditions and culture is preserved.
Now Ukraine is collecting its history.
Today we are a country of warriors, and no matter how much pain is inflicted on us – for us, who are responsible for modernity, the main thing is to save our children and preserve our culture.
If we do it, Ukraine will stand.” (с) Юрко Вовкогон
