What is this day for the majority of Ukrainians? It is a holiday, which is spent in a family circle. In the day time visiting concerts under open sky and festive markets, meeting friends and cooking barbeques, enjoying nature and summertime. And at night the sky over Ukraine is lightened with fireworks of all colors and shapes. It is time for good rest and making good memories. Ukrainians, living all over the world, will celebrate this date with their motherland !
