Ukrainian dating customs

Ukrainian customs connected to the birth of a child are filled with the rites and using of amulets.And also with many omens traditional in our country.The pregnant women are not recommended to meet the sick persons, look at the snakes or have their hair cut, sew or cut, buy something for a future child.The less people know about the future pregnancy – the better.Making a formal proposal of marriage (in a traditional ceremony with matchmakers coming to the house of the prospective bride's father), engagement, arrangements and covering the head of the bride (a move from the maidenhead to the married life), bachelorette party (hen party) or wedding train, invitation and wedding march with many ransoms for the bride – our contemporaries follow all these merry elements with pleasure.

That is why despite our culturoligic European status and relatively short history of state we can take care of the spiritual continuity and we know well our native unwritten laws – the Ukrainian customs and traditions.

If you can sing or wish to celebrate someone you can earn a little of Ukrainian hrivnas or sweets.

These children going round looks like American Halloween.

Do not give anything across the threshold not to quarrel – better step on the threshold or even more better – come inside.

We guess it is the evident sign of the famous Ukrainian hospitability!
