O Christmas Tree


Here is another photo from Freedom Square. It's hard to believe Ukrainians have only been celebrating Christmas for 14 years now. Before 1992, Christmas had been illegal for 75 years in Ukraine. No one was allowed to publicly celebrate. Today it's a different story. Decorations and celebrations are in full force. Although the snow is scarce and the grass is still green, it's easy to feel the "Christmas Spirit" with all the brightly colored decorations.

Very festive, those trees. Christmas is still coming for you, right, at least if you are following the old tradition there.

Meanwhile, Happy New Year.
