Project Presentation (8 min.)

T: Your home task was to prepare computer presentations about Christmas in Ukraine. And now, please, give your presentations to the class.

Team 1. Christmas in Ukraine.

Slide 1. Introduction.

Slide 2. Christmas is a very popular holiday in Ukraine. It is on January 7. On this day all members of the family should be at home together.

Slide 3. January 6 is Christmas Eve. It is the most interesting part of Christmas. On Christmas Eve people have Sviata Vecheria (Holy Supper). It begins when the children of the family see the first star in the evening sky.

This supper is different from other evening meals because people make 12 Lenten dishes. They symbolize 12 months of the year or 12 apostles of Jesus.

Slide 4. Among Christmas dishes are uzvar (the drink made of dried fruits) varenyky, mushrooms, borshch and others. But the main Ukrainian Christmas dish is kutia. It is a sweet grain pudding with raisins, nuts, poppy-seeds and honey. It is the first dish that should be eaten on Christmas Eve.

Slide 5. After the Supper children go from house to house and sing koliadky or Christmas carols. They spread grains wishing all the best to the mistress and the master of the house. They also ask for donations.

Slide 6. An important part of Christmas decoration is didukh. It is a magic tree that is made of wheat stalks. People put it under the icons in the house. Didukh is a symbol of good crops.

Team 2. Christmas in Ukraine

Slide 1. Introduction

Slide 2. Ukrainian Christmas festive days start on January 6, Christmas Eve, and end on January 19, Epiphany. Ukrainian Christmas traditions are unique. They are not the same in different parts of Ukraine.

Slide  3. In most parts of Ukraine on Christmas Eve people make verteps. These are scenes about Jesus birth. People can see verteps near and inside churches. At night people put candles inside verteps for those who come to church for the night service.

Slide 4. Christmas Eve is called in Ukraine  Sviaty Vechir (Holy Evening) or Sviata Vecheria (Holy Supper). People cook delicious meals for this evening. There should be 12 meatless dishes. The ritual Christmas food is kutia.

Slide 5. After repeating the Lord prayer the head of the family greets the family with the traditional  Khrystos Rodyvsia! (Christ is born) and all reply Slavimo Yoho! (Let us glory him). After that the family eats Christmas food. When supper is over it’s time for Christmas songs.

Slide 6. At midnight the family goes to a special Christmas service. There people hear again a nice story the birth of Christ. They also sing Christmas carols.

Relaxation (2 min)

T: Let’s sing together a famous Ukrainian Christmas song “GOOD EVENING TO YOU, SIR”:             

Good evening to you, Sir, master of the household!

Refrain after each line:  

   O, rejoice!

O, rejoice the whole Earth

    For God’s Son has been just born!

 Do cover your tables with tapestry precious.

And put on them sweet cakes from white spring wheat flour.

  For to you will come soon three feasts as guests welcome.

  The first feast to come here will be Christmas Holy. 
  The second  one will be the Saint Basil’s feast day.
