If you didn’t know, Ukraine is really the country that sticks to various traditions and prefers to follow them no matter how old they are. Probably, this is because this country and people living there are very friendly and wish to enjoy life every day! So, what are the main traditions that can be seen in almost every family?
Ukrainian people love guests. If you decide to visit someone, first of all you will be met with bread and salt. Also, a very rich table with lots of food will be prepared for you. You will not manage to leave the house hungry!
Ukraine is also known for its passion to embroidery. Wearing clothes decorated with stitched pictures and ornaments is very old. In ancient times such decorations were used for protection from evil forces and for distinguishing people living in different places. Just looking at the shirt one could understand where the comer lived! Nowadays, the passion to stitched clothes grew again, and one can see many people in the streets wearing such decorated shirts, especially ladies.
Ukrainian ladies also like another traditional element of clothes – chaplet. It usually consists of flowers and colorful ribbons. Yet, it is not worn every day. Young women put it on only during holidays, and this really adds charm and spring feeling to their image.
The last interesting tradition from Ukraine we would like to tell you about is connected with flowers. If you want to present your Slavic woman flowers, choose only uneven number. The even number of flowers can only be put on graves, so if you make a mistake, you may awfully abuse your lady, as this is the sign of bad luck. But, in any case, we believe that you will manage only to please your lady with nice and useful gifts!
