There are many holidays celebrated in Ukraine. They can be divided in three groups: all-national, political and religious ones. Some of them have an ancient origin and others appeared in Ukrainian calendars quite recently. All official holidays are marked with red in Russian calendars and are days-off (excepting for our Service!)
Here is the list of main Ukrainian holidays and some comments.
January 1. New Year. This is everybody's favourite holiday. Decorating the Christmas tree, going to New Year's parties, getting presents, — we love all this and impatiently wait for New Year's eve to come. This is a nice chance to give your lady a present and prove her that she is really very important to you.
January 6. Orthodox Christmas. A great deal of old Ukrainian customs that go back to centuries ago are connected with Christmas. They are fortune telling, singing Christmas carols, cooking traditional Ukrainian Christmas dishes, going to church.
February 14. St. Valentine's Day. The Day of lovers, when we give presents and flowers to our sweethearts.
March 8. International Women's Day. This day is hugely popular among women in Ukraine as they receive flowers and chocolates from the men they know. They should not do any housework on this day. It is recommended to send flowers and some gifts to all your Ukrainian ladies. It will be highly appreciated as it is considered to be a sign of your attention (or lack of attention).
Easter Day comes according to the lunar calendar. It could fall on any Sunday in April or May and is full of lovely traditions. Eggs are boiled and then painted brightly in different colours. Very special sweet Easter bread is baked, full of raisins. Often people will take food like the eggs and bread to the church to be blessed by a priest on Easter night. This is the day to stop and think about Jesus Christ's death for our salvation, about what we have to do to improve ourselves and the life around us.
March 9. Birthday of Taras Shevchenko , a famous poet of Ukrain
May 1-2. Originally the Day of International Solidarity of Workers, it became just a holiday of spring though communists make their traditional demonstrations on that day.
May 9. The Victory Day. There is hardly a Russian family which would not suffer from Nazis in the Great Patriotic war 1941-1945. There is always a military parade involving all the people who took part in World War II. All the old uniforms are worn with the original medals. Their family and friends give these old soldiers flowers and congratulations.
June 28. Constitution Day
August 24. Independence Day. In 1991 independence was proclaimed and Ukraine became a Sovereign state. A very important holiday.
November 7-8. We commemorate the anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution that happened in 1917. History isn't something to be rewritten. Millions of people died in an attempt to realize their own ideas. They are all dead now, and History itself will decide who was right and who was wrong. We aren't to judge anybody, we are just to pray for the peace of their souls.

Yours satisfied customer Alex,
My dear Tatyana,
I was talking with my Fiancee, Tanya, last night and she was still so delighted with the flowers you chose for me.
She told me the colours were so beautiful and she loved the cream roses. She also told me the bouquet was so big and heavy, she is not able to carry the flowers and the large vase with the water, to her computer so she can show me the photograph of them.
I have been able to see all the other flowers you delivered to her and I can agree with Tanya, they were beautiful. This is the reason I will continue to use your services until she comes to England to be my wife.
Again, I want to thank you Tatyana for the beautiful flowers you have delivered, You have made her very happy. She cannot stop telling me about them!!
Tanya told me that the man who delivered the flowers, took two photographs of her with the flowers. Would it be possible Tatyana, to send me a copy of this photograph by email of this bouquet?? I would be so grateful if it is possible.
I hope, and look forward to the photo email from you in the near future, and thank you once again for the bouquet and the hand written card (In English) It has been very special for my Tanya, thank you to you and all your staff for such a wonderful service.
