Long service
by Steven Haninger / March 26, 2005 9:43 PM PST

Yep, 2? hours. We had pre eucharist fasting requirements years ago. I think it was 3 hrs for solids and 1 for liquids. A service of this length requires and inversion of those.:) Ours was quite moving and well attended for a vigil. I'm not a singer. My wife will probably end up being like some of the old ladys I remember as a kid...too loud and off key...Life is good.:)

Presbyterian minister. We lived a while in Salisbury NC where he preached a few years so we went to his church. Only once have I been to an Easter sunrise. I was about 12 years old then. It was quite memorable and inspiring. I don't think folks even wore watches on Sundays back then.:)

Are you Ukrainian? I've studied Ukranian culture and history through my military studies and my Ukranian friends here in town. There is quite a vibrant Ukranian cultural center here. Many good Ukranian eats can be had at their many events held during the year. I had a friend whose mother made really good pickled garlic and Varenyky. The Kutya served at the center every christmas is out of this world.While you are bustling about why not throw in a batch of Nalysnyky for me!

schaslyvoho Velykodnia Evie!

... a Ukie wannabe. My husband is of Ukrainian decent, born here but speaks fluently (no accent amazingly). Both of my inlaws escaped Ukraine (more dramatic for the Father in law) during WWII.

I do the traditional Ukrainian Christmas Eve celebration. Kutya, Holobtsi, Varenyky, etc. Didn't get to learn everything from my MIL before she passed away suddenly. Still regret that Sad But I did watch once when she made the Paska and I made notes of the changes in the Ukrainian cookbook she gave me. I think she watches over my baking. None of my efforts have ever seemed to go smoothly (this year the dough didn't seem to rise too well although the loaves rose well during baking), but it always comes out good. Hoping for more of the same but I could only make three big loaves (tin foil casserole pans are good for this!) so no tasting as two will be gifts and one for the table.

For the Easter Season:
Christos Vosgres
Voyistono Vosgres
Used to get a laugh with the MIL because both of us often mixed up the Christmas and Easter Greetings.

Where's "here"? I never knew a Ukrainian until I met my husband. We have gone to various celebrations, etc. I am amazed at the size of the Ukrainian community up in Canada, and of the size of the festivals in the NY Catskills. Also have friends in Chicago area.

Evie Happy

Yes we do have a large Ukrainian community up here, particularly in Manitoba where it has gotten to the point where the Ukrainian community occasionally pushes for special Charter status.The whole thing has to do with Quebec and its peculiar, singular status in our Charter.I knew a Ukranian girl who went to high school with me. She and I took an Italian 100 course together up at UVIC. She was very good with languages and took to Italian like a duck to water. I still remember how well she could say the "gli" which gave the rest of us so much trouble.
I'm not surprised your husband speaks english without an accent. The Ukranians I knew spoke very good english and could bounce back and forth between the two languages without missing a beat.
What a story your in-laws must have told regarding their escape(s). I know the history of the Ukraine during this period (WWII). It is simply riveting. I'm sure there was a book in the offing there. Did you suggest they write a book about their escapes? The public has an interest in that sort of book. Not to mention the historical value and contribution such a book would have made. This genre is becoming quite popular in Germany lately, especially personal accounts by german soldiers who served on the Eastern Front.
Sorry about your mother in law. I would not be the least bit surprised if she was watching over you right there in the kitchen.
Yes the Ukranians do get into the "special occasions". Our community here does not do large festivals but they do hold numerous get-togethers and various celebrations to which the general public is usually invited.They advertise their events in the local papers and let the public know they are welcome to attend.I would like to see them redo their community center. It's starting to look a little gothic and drab. I would also like to sample some genuine Ukranian beer.
Yes. No tasting!
I wish you the best with your Easter culinary adventures!
